Some Famous Quotes from American History
“Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?
Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me
liberty, or give me death!”
Patrick Henry
“What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives
everything its value.”
Thomas Paine
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are en-
dowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty
and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Declaration of Independence
“The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness.
You have to catch it yourself.”
Benjamin Franklin
“Loyalty to the country always. Loyalty to the government when it deserves it.”
Mark Twain

Introduction
It only makes sense to study geography alongside history. In history, we learn about times,
places and people. Each aspect of historical study is important in its own right, but they cannot
be studied exclusively of one another. For example, we you study the Goldrush in California, you
learn that it took place primarily in the year 1849 and that thousands of hopeful miners made their
way across the country and even the world to the gold fields. Why not have the student look at a
map or globe to find out where this took place? Better yet, have him label and color a map drawn
specifically of that region and for that time period in history. When children have visual cues, it
helps to cement fact into their minds.
As a homeschooling family, this is what we like to do. We compile the completed maps into
a notebook along with narrations from the history texts we have read and pictures of historical events
that the children have drawn and captioned. When we have completed a unit of history study, the
children then have their own “book” which they have made which tells the story of the history that
they have learned and summarized. The maps make nice colorful entries into their notebooks.
Some areas of these maps have been purposely left unlabeled. The reason for this is to allow
the teacher and student to discuss the map briefly before the actual coloring begins. There are a few
questions included for each map under the “Lesson Plans” section which follows. The student may
be asked to label a certain body of water or a bordering country. He may be asked to draw in a river
or identify a city. The teacher should be willing to help with spelling or with answers if the child has
forgotten. This is meant to be fun and interactive and not a test or drill. Learning geography comes
with familiarity. In fact, if the student incorporates all of these maps into his study of U.S. history,
he will begin to memorize geographical facts which will remain with him for a lifetime.
To gain the most benefit from these blackline maps, it would be advantageous to have on
hand a globe, wall map, or an atlas for reference. The student may be asked to look something up
on the globe and then label it onto the blank map. Also, have available some decent art supplies.
As your student matures, he or she should be expected to present to you upon completion a neatly
colored or pencil shaded map. For variety, allow the student to experiment with watercolors for a
different effect; or let her use glue and glitter on a major route. No matter what their age, children
should always be encouraged to do their “best”.
Older students (7-12 grades) are encouraged to use the blank maps and fill in everything
that is labeled on the labeled map plus complete the instructions in the lesson plans. They may use
the labeled map for help with answers once they have attempted to look up the answers in another
source, if possible.
We hope these maps enhance your study of history and make learning geography an

Includes...
• Date of Statehood
• Capital City
• Main rivers and waterways
• Rank in size
• Rank in date
• State bird
• State flower
• Large 11”x17” US map
Instructions for use:
Of course, you may do whatever you wish with these maps, but we suggest that when
you study a state, that the student trace the rivers and color in the state, especially on the
large map which will give location and perspective. Also, take note of the state facts.
If you have field guides available, look up the state bird and state flower. He may draw
them on the map,if he wishes. When completed, post the maps on a bulletin board or as-
semble them into a notebook, by size, by date of statehood or alphabetically. Have fun!
