Activity Overview

It is important for students to know the locations of the states on a map, and the capital cities of each state. Filling out a blank map or creating a map from scratch helps students retain information in a more concrete way. For this activity, students will create a poster showing the Northeast states, capitals, and the major bodies of water. Students will also add illustrations that apply to the Northeast. Students may use a map of the United States, or use the individual states template provided to create their own map.
