State Heads

State Heads


Kids will draw a picture using the shape of a US state as a template. Perfect for geography and social studies lessons.

What You Need:

  • template of a state (we used Ohio)
  • pencils
  • crayons
  • colored pencils
  • large drawing or construction paper

What You Do:

  1. Review state facts, whatever state you choose.
  2. Review shape of the state.
  3. Students draw the state on the upper left hand side of large drawing paper — allowing room for hair and a speech bubble to the right.
  4. Encourage students to incorporate sentences inside the speech bubble:
    • Hello my name is _____.
    • I live in ______,city, state (ie: Dayton, Ohio).
    • I am good at ______.
    • My state is known for _______.
  5. Students then detail their state head with facial features.
  6. Encourage your students to really add their own personality to these wonderful heads
