Does anyone know where I can find a printable shape book for the USA?
What do you mean? Can you describe it?
Do you mean a book that has the shapes of states (1 per 8 1/2 x 11" page) and lines inside the states to write? I haven't seen anything like that so far. Maybe it is online, but normally I just make what I think up in my mind.
Yes, Ms. J. That's exactly what I'm talking about. I want my kiddos to make a state book along with the postcard exchange. Guess I better get to work huh...
I am trying to put together a "passport" for the postcard exchange! Perhaps we can put out heads together!
You have to be a member ($35 per year) to make the books in shape of all the states, but they have them....I find this to be a valuable site!

This is the same website, but it's a different link. It lets me print the outlines for free.
Here's another one.
Ooo! Then you can draw lines on there with thin permanent marker if you intend for them to have lines. This works better than drawing a bunch of states. That's what I would have done unknowingly... :mellow:
http://www.enchantedlearning.com has printouts that have state information (state flag, bird, flower etc.)...not sure about shape book though.
www.eduplace.com/ss/maps has outline maps that can be copied. They are free. They copy off on a regular sheet of paper and could be bound in a book.

Sharon122, I like the passport idea. Have you come up with anything yet? PM me and let's brainstorm.
Separate names with a comma.
