Your child will have or will be studying the United States of America. While away from school could they please pick one of the American states i.e. Texas or Alaska etc and create a fact file about that US State? They could include information relating to its population, size, location in the USA (North West or South East etc), main physical features, land marks and any other fun information they would like to include. Pupils could also make some Top Trump US State cards, comparting population, size, when it became a US State, distance to Washington DC etc.
