• Nearly every week, students will complete State Studies.  They are excellent exercises in geography, research, writing (including paraphrasing), paying attention to detail, and creativity.  These links are good sources to help with the studies!  In addition, fifth grade is a time when students must learn the spellings and locations of all fifty states and capitals; you will find some fun links to help practice this!
