Acronyms - States
Students will learn about Acronyms and will fill out the worksheet that I have included in this lesson plan. This lesson is on states. Students will find information on specific states listed in the worksheet and find words that begin with the letters of the states.
First, you will copy the worksheet. After that, you will explain about Acronyms and give them examples such as using their first names and having them pick words that begin with each letter of their first names. For example: J A M E S = Jolly, Anxious, Mellow, Eager, Successful. However, the words they choose for each letter of the states should relate to the state.
Directions: Write words that relate to the letters of the states. You will need to look up the states in your history book or another reference book where you can locate some information about each state. For example, in the word California, you could use L = landslides or I = inactive volcanoes. Both of those are in California. You can also use different cities, parks, and other names in California.
You can grade the students on their accuracy of information they wrote for each state. You can also grade them on spelling.
