Across the United States K-2


It's Spring! To celebrate, from now through April 29th, selected digital titles have been marked down by 40%! For more Spring savings, visit the Spring sale page.

In this fun and interactive unit study, your children will explore the 50 states as well as geographic features of the United States!  Our approach is to use board games, interactive online games and activities, clay work and drawing, music, kinesthetic activities, and other hands-on methods to make learning the geography of the United States fun, interactive and memorable!

This unit study is intended as a year long study of the United States, with students completing one state each week. The geography of the United States is vast and diverse, so it lends itself to a slow study, allowing the concepts, places, and particulars to be explored over time. 

Take a peek at some of the activities inside:

• Make maps of states and geographical features
• Explore the history and geography of the states
• Learn the state capitals
• Play online interactive games
• Create clay US puzzles
• Design state postcards
• Cook state recipes
• Play map games
• Create and play a US map board game
• Travel the US with a US geography passport
• Play kinesthetic geography games
• And much more!

All activities in this unit study are presented in an easy to follow format with active and updated web links. The links bring the world to your children by providing interactive web sites, educational games, and more. At Intellego Unit Studies, we believe in the varied learning styles and multiple intelligences of every child. That's why all of our unit studies include reading and writing activities, videos, art, music, drawing and painting, discussions, hands-on activities, art projects, and more!

Target ages: 5-8
Average time to complete: 2-3 hours each week

We offer two product lines for your convenience:

Our Core Curriculum Series provides a COMPLETE curriculum for the core social studies and science subjects. The subjects include:

Physical Science (Physics and Chemistry)
Life Science (Biology)
Earth and Space Science
World History
American History

We offer them as single units to allow parents to try one before committing to the entire series. In addition, purchasing them one at a time, as you need them, allows you the flexibility to select the units of interest to your children.

There are three age/grade levels:
K-2; 3-5; and 6-8

Each age/grade level spans three academic years and offers 24 individual titles. Each individual title is expected to take about 5-6 weeks to complete. Therefore, during each academic year, you select the eight individual titles best suited to your child's educational needs and interests!

The Core Curriculum Series titles are inspired by national and state standards as well as The Core Knowledge Series by E.D. Hirsch, Jr. 

We also offer larger Elective unit studies to use with a wider age/grade range of students.

At Intellego Unit Studies, our mission is to provide comprehensive, rigorous and hands-on curriculum that is easy on the parent and engaging for the child. We take our mission very seriously and adhere to the highest standards in curriculum design, innovation, and customer service. We stand behind our products and exceptional customer service is our goal. We utilize a continuous improvement model to monitor, verify and update all web links within our curriculum.

This pains me a bit to write because we've used a number of Intellego's unit studies with great success, but this one was incredibly disappointing. The content is incredibly thin - basically the same activities each time, but for a different state. [...]

I did like the many different learning style incorporated into the lesson and creative ideas like cooking a meal from the state; however, it doesn't give you meal or snack ideas just a website address. I feel for the price it should have at least liste [...]

I enjoy teaching my son again! Normally, my son has a horrible time sitting long enough for other lessons! Maybe it's because he has autism, maybe because he has reading delay. Up until now, when I say it's time for school, he ran and hid! I bought thi [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
