Lesson Plans by Lauren Ayube

Located in the Northeast region, Massachusetts is rich in history and places to visit, from the coast to mountains. A state research project is the perfect summative activity for any U.S. Region, Geography class, or general research unit of study. Students will love learning about state landmarks, mottos, fun facts, history, and so much more! Research is an important skill for children to learn at a young age; it exposes students to expository text, gives them practice determining important information, and enhances note taking and presentation skills.
