When learning about an area I love getting my kids hands on. For us, that means crafts and activities. So since we are doing this Alabama State Unit Study I figure we need some Alabama crafts for kids as well.
15 Easy and Fun Alabama Crafts for Kids
This help gets kids excited and while they do a craft I like to do a read out loud book about Alabama or the subject the craft is about. Remember we also have our Alabama Unit Study Printable, it includes virtual field trips. You can find it on Teacher Pay Teachers as well.
