State Study: Delaware

This was a fairly simple state study because I wasn’t able to find super a lot of books about it.  Just wait, the next state our geography group had to divide into TWO SUPER PACKED weeks.



This is the cover of our new geography book.  Each of my kiddos has one of these, and each week as we complete things they’re going to glue their projects into their own book.


I think this will work better for us than my creating one lapbook that they can’t really mess with because it’s just one.  Now they each get their own.


The USA passport and map comes from Musings of Me, who has started their own geography study, that is pretty cool.  They’re going in alphabetical order of the states, so most of the time we’re going to be covering stuff at different times, but when they do coincide I’m going to have a whole slew of stuff to figure out how to work in.



Here’s what’s inside so far:

On our Delaware page is the horseshoe crab animal pages.  If you’ve seen my previous animal pages you’ll note I’ve added another page to the template.  That’s because the other families we’re doing this with have older kids as well this makes them do a little more work than cut and paste pictures.  (To get to the printable, follow the link on the left).



Also on the Delaware page is their state symbols.  You can also see on the left hand page the Pennsylvania symbols where an overly zealous Batman glued that on the wrong page…….  Oh well.  Click on the picture to get to the printable.


Other activities I did, but do not have a printable for:

Canonballs and Cornstalks (though I might add that in for my kids), my boys have not let me return this book to the library because “it has soldiers.”

Horseshoe Moon- I’ll have to come back and put this link in.  But, super cute book, I highly recommend it.


I still plan to have them trace and write the word Delaware and add that to the page, but haven’t done so yet.


On the left hand page is the activity I featured over on ABC and 123.

And apparently on that post I forgot to put a link over to the printable, so here it is:

  1. Love, love, love your state studies. Like the link, too. Thanks.
    I laughed when you said that there wasn't much on Delaware. We know Delaware well because we live on the state border. Two of our doctors actually are in Delaware, for example. There really isn't much there! Partially that is because it is such a small state. I think you did a great job capturing the highlights of the state.

  2. We're still having gmail woes…can't log into the blog…but it's still there.

    We actually go to church and do a lot in Delaware. They like to draw in out-of-staters for shopping bc it's a sales tax free state. It's just where closish shopping is for us. (There are churches in our town…but we choose to travel 35-40 minutes to get to church…)

    If you are NASCAR fans, Dover Downs is there, too.

    The beaches in DE are nice…not nearly as commercial as NJ and MD.

    (Oh, we live minutes from MD, too, though we're in PA.)
