Learning About U.S. States & Capitals: California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii
In this lesson, students will learn the locations of five different states – California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii – as well as the capital cities of each state. Students will conduct research to learn more about these five states and will record their information in a packet. The teacher will also review the concept of federalism to reinforce why each state has its own government and capital. To close the lesson, students will need to label the states and their capitals on a blank map of the United States.
