State Float Research Project
Are your students studying the states? This research based project is so fun and engaging that your students won’t even realize they are learning! In this project students will design and create a parade float for any state.
Studying the geography of the United States is such a fun topic, and this project is a perfect way to wrap up a unit or the school year. I have my students make their floats out of a shoe box or other small box. Then, students use drawings, pictures, or other items to decorate their float.
This is a fun, creative way to assess students’ knowledge of a state. This resource also includes a rubric for easy grading.
