Presents history and facts about each of the fifty states in the form of a school report by a team of students.

Publishers Description

The kids in Ms. Brandt's class create a special report on the United States of America, with each child doing research on ten states. There's a double-spread map of the whole U.S. and a page for every state jam-packed with trivia, interesting facts, handwritten captions, and jokes. At the end of the book is a map showing how the United States grew over time, a spread on the presidents and what states they hailed from, as well as a "bibliography" of books the kids used in their research. Written by a team of well-known author/artists, this 64-page Smart About History book is a great guide for kids.

Reviews - What do customers think about Smart About the Fifty States (Smart About History)?

great elementary intro to 50 states  Jul 20, 2006
My 7 yr old daughter was in 1st grade when we bought this book. My daughter's class went from studying the 43 presidents to studying the 50 states. We had been pleased w/the presidents book from this same series, so we bought the state version. The small size, paperback nature, reading level, & casual drawings (like an elementary class project) make it VERY KID FRIENDLY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it for the target audience -is elementary school children who will have a chance to study/grasp more in depth material later.
Fun and Useful for 3rd-4th Grade  Jul 7, 2004
This book was written by students in Ms. Brandt's class which does not specify the age or grade. Five students took on ten states to research; autographed by each, and gives a simple but fun look at the states including humor. The reoccurring theme of each state is the state, its nickname, capital and facts that would be of interest to children. The illustrations bring the states to life with the capitals depicted by a star in each students' writing. They wrap things up with a list of all the Presidents, when they served, and where they were born. I think it's a great starting point and reference for 3rd and 4th graders.
