Learning About Idaho For Kids

Teaching kids about states - This is a great place to start (for lack of any kind of alphabetic or first to last state order).  If you like potatoes, you might be fond of this one:

Idaho: One State Among 50 That Offers a Fun Lesson for Summertime Learning

If Idaho is too far for you to visit, take a virtual field trip.  Get out a map of the state and let your child run his or her finger along the roads and rivers.  Get a miniature doll or car and roll it over the map.  If you like, make a 3D version of the state.  Study the hills, mountains, valleys, etc. and recreate it with clay or other crafting materials.

Use your imagination and make learning come alive for your child.
