Read "Across" America

For all those looking to find a great list of Geography/Social Studies reading and picture books for your children and students-- NEA has a great link!

"A popular activity is to "travel" across a map of the U.S. by reading a book that takes place in each of the states. (A variation is to read a book whose author lives in a particular state, or a book about a particular state.) If your class is participating in this activity and you are a book or two short, or your students are eager for more, try these titles from their "State-by-State Booklist".

For a supporting geography activity: Place a map of the U.S. on the wall, and mark-off, or put a sticker on each state as students read books from the above "track your reading adventures" across the U.S.! Challenge students to read about all 50 states during the year!!
