What I am really excited about is being able to use this resource for our history and geography studies. The Booking Across the USA project is a built in state-by-state unit study with a wealth of information from people who live in that state. At the end of this post you can see the resources from all of the other states.
The book I chose to use for our Booking Across the USA project is A is for Arches written by Becky Hall and illustrated by Katherine Larson. This book is so beautiful. It goes through the letters of the alphabet outlining something from Utah history related to each letter. The illustrations are fabulous and there is so much information in this book about our state. I loved reading it with my kids as we all learned from it. Many of the things in there are sites that we have been to and experienced for ourselves. The author has done many other states in this series, too.
Along with this book, I have created a matching game. For each letter I made an image card that matches up to a description card of that image. You can play this as a typical matching game, or you can do it face-up to make it easier for younger kids.
