We created this lesson for 3rd graders as a pre test about the states and their locations. In this lesson, the students are asked to recognize the location of the specified states on a blank map. Students would only be tested on a few states to assess their knowledge. Then, the teacher would lead an activity about the states and eventually go over all 50 states. This quiz could be altered for every grade level by switching from states to capitals, cities, or landmarks. The post we created is for a starting point of understanding states, and over time students will begin to learn more about the states and be able to take other similar pretests about other aspects of the states.
