HomeworkSpot > Great State

Great States

That paper on Tennessee is due tomorrow and you haven't started it yet. If the local library has locked its doors, log on and start learning.

Encyclopedias and Almanacs

At the library, your first stop for general information would probably be the encyclopedia shelf. Online encyclopedias can also be helpful. At Britannica.com, a search for Maryland brings up state history, flags, maps and images. Encarta and Infoplease.com are two others to try.

Great State Sites

Some of the best information comes from the state itself. On California's official Web site, you'll find links on agriculture, education, business and more. For a list of other state home pages, visit GovSpot.com.

The following sites are also packed with state information:

  • The US50
    Offers a comprehensive history of each state. The site was developed by governors' offices, state departments of tourism and departments of economic and community development. You'll also find state geography, links and trivia. (Did you know that the oldest carousel in the United States is located in the resort town of Watch Hill, Rhode Island?)




  • Stately Knowledge
    The Internet Public Library provides an almanac of state information, including a comparative size and population chart.

  • 50states.com
    This almanac of state knowledge provides interesting and often obscure information, from the highest point to the state song.

  • Education World: U.S. Capitals
    Need to memorize state capitals, birds, largest cities or state flowers? This chart is ready for printing.

Statistics

The best source for statistics is the Census Bureau, a government agency that surveys the population every 10 years. The American Factfinder, which allows you to search by state or community, breaks down Census data by factors like population and age.

Tourism Information

Wondering what you can see and do in Arkansas or Illinois? Travel guides provide general information on attractions and events in select cities and states.
