Math Topic: Place
Construction paper, markers, push
Outline the state of Texas on a large
sheet of construction paper. Pin it on
the bulletin board.
Have students find the populations of the
five largest cities and the populations
of the five largest counties in Texas.
Help students identify the locations of
the cities and the counties on the
outlined map. Then have students write
the names of the cities and counties and
write their populations on the map.
Encourage students to include a picture,
a postcard, or a drawing of the cities or
counties with the map. Extend the
activity by having students search for
more statistical data about Texas to
include in the map.
Note: You can modify this
activity for your home state.
