I just purchased the DVD sets The States and The Presidents from the History Channel for $30 (including shipping). I was looking at The States set and noticed that the combo set was actually cheaper than just the set covering the states alone. Weird, huh?
Anyhow, I have really been thinking about starting a study of the 50 states with my dd. We have already travelled to a few states and we are planning on adding Alaska to our list in September (super, super excited). It seems like The States DVDs give just a quick overview of each state which will be perfect for what I have planned. I have yet to see any of these and a search on Netflix came up emty, but reviews elsewhere are rather positive. Somewhere on the web I believe that I read that these are targeted for 3rd graders on up, but we shall give this a go with my 1st grader. 🙂
