As a homeschooling mom of four, I am always looking for inexpensive ways to teach our children. Free is even better! I have found some fantastic websites that are offering free resources to help study the United States. I thought I would put them all together here so you all could benefit from them too.
I wanted a big map of the United States for our wall. I also wanted to be able to write on it and I did not want to pay a lot of money for it. I was so thankful to find this free printable map from Owl & Mouse. There are several maps besides the US Map. You can choose the size map you want to print. I chose the 4 x 4 map, which used 16 pages of paper. Our children helped me tape it all together and pin it up on the wall. We are studying 10 states at a time, using the 5 week study below. As we study each State, I color the state in and label it.

I wanted to find a resource to study the State capitals. I was so thankful to find this free 5 week study of State Capitals from Ridgetop Ramblings. Each week has a free printable study of 10 State Capitals. Each study includes a partial map of the 10 states, word search, crossword, matching and labeling. Our children are having so much fun using this study.

I just recently found these free Notebooking Through the States from Marine Corp Nomads. If you scroll to the bottom of the post, there is a link to download all the pages for all 50 states. Each States has five pages of information to be completed. She also includes resources at the bottom of where to find the information you will need in order to complete the pages.
