Laurie Keller makes learning the geography of the United States fun. See what happens when Kansas is bored and Idaho and Virginia decide all the states should trade places. Or, enjoy as each state prepares for the Scrambled States Talent Show.


Each class is also asked to prepare an outline of their state on 13 x 19 inch poster board and share 3 facts about their state that the other classes should know.


ASK (Authors Specialist and Knowledge) is a process that provides students with the opportunity to interview an author or a subject specialist in the topic they are reading about in a novel. 

Preparation resources available here - 



Please make sure you can commit to the work necessary to prepare for this program before registering your class.
