This map activity shows how the Unites States grew from 13 colonies to 50 states. Students will label the 50 states in the order that they joined the United States. Students will then color the map based on the time period that each state joined for a visual representation of the nation’s growth. The included PowerPoint presentation shows students the location of each state to help them complete and color their map. Students can also complete the activity on their own without the PowerPoint.
