  1. What month do you start to incorporate this curriculum? Do you try to coincide Native Americans with Thanksgiving?

    Also, u purchased/ downloaded this curriculum in 2011. I see the jeopardy game, flags, salt map template, and travel log, but not a student manual. Is this part the same as the student manual?

    Thanks for all of your hard work!

    1. We just started with lesson 1 in August when we start school. I don’t try to match up things seasonally, but you could try I suppose. There have been SEVERAL updates since 2011! If you have that old of a version you’ll probably want to get the updated curriculum 🙂

  2. Is this meant to be used on a daily basis in order to complete it in a school year, or can it be used once or twice a week and still be completed in a year’s time?

    1. Hi Taylre,
      Yes it’s a 5-day a week curriculum that covers the entire US in 1 school year. That said, you can also modify it to span over two years, or even skip some things and fit it in 1 year but maybe only doing it 4 days per week. It’s fairly flexible.

  3. Hi there! Interested in purchasing, but wondering about close to 400 pages for each student… do you have a place you recommend for printing / binding at a good price? Would I need to print off all 363 pages for my son (1st gr) and daughter (3rd)? Just want to understand! Thanks!

          1. You can bind them, or put them in a 3-ring binder. Whichever you prefer. I like the binder because we included divider tabs with pockets, so they could add in any little extras into their binder easily.

        1. You can print B/W for most of this. The state books are red/white/blue so you may want to print those pages in color. And there are a couple of activity pages that are color as well. The rest of the worksheets are already b/w and the students color them in.

  4. Hello,
    I purchased this pack sometime ago (about 2 yrs) and we completed only the Southwest region. I still have it downloaded but now that I’m coming back to it for my younger children (now old enough), I cannot find the State Overview page (bird, flower, flag, animal) and postcard page. Is there a different teacher’s version than student workbook? Thanks for any help – love your products!

    1. Hi Susie,
      Yes, there is a teacher’s manual and a student workbook as well as the animals unit that all come with this curriculum. Make sure you downloaded all three files 🙂 If you need more assistance please email me and I can help!

  5. It looks amazing!!!! I did a U.S. state study with both of my kids in the early grades. We had the most fun of all the years (just graduated the 1st child) and learned so much!!!! I actually designed my own for each child with a variety of resources from the library and online. We did a postcard exchange along with our study. We also cooked recipes for every state (there is a US state cookbook). I ordered travel guides from every state and we made collages from the pictures of the things we would do if we visited. As you can tell, I enjoyed it too.
