See individual state activities for listings of materials.
In this activity, students learn about the 50 states in preparation for a special field day. On the actual field day, the oldest students in the school manage each of 50 physical activity stations. They share information about each state and introduce the activities. Each physical activity has a connection to a different state. The music teacher gets involved by teaching students the song Fifty Nifty United States. (Order the accompaniment CD.)
For complete details, see Fifty States Field Day.
Survey students to learn what their favorite activities were.
