This was AWESOME. Not only did I have a blast making the example, the kids and their parents (at SKA) went wild with this! They created all sorts of paper sculptures to go on top of their waves. Altogether a fantastic project.
This website has a game called "place that state" This game allows students to place states in the proper place when they are all mixed up. It is an effective website to allow students to review the states and capitals. I think this would be a good website to provide students to allow them to study at home.
