This is the perfect course to do with any state study! Listen to the state's official --and unofficial --songs as you learn about each state. Videos of the songs, as well as links to lyrics and sheet music are included.
This course is all you need if you don't want an additional state study curriculum since the state symbols and other pertinent information are included for each state.
One of my favorite parts of the course is the inclusion of additional songs that are representative of each state, but aren't "official." Many of these were recommended by those who live in and love their state. Thanks for sharing these with all of us! (If I missed your favorite, but sure to let me know.)
The "State Songs of the 50 U.S. States" Course is perfect for making geography study of the states of the United States comprehensive and exciting!
My son and I had so much fun already with the state songs tonight! Had trouble getting him to bed because he kept saying "just one more song!" ~Randi Smith, homeschool mom and blogger at Peanut Butter Fish Lessons

"This music course is a perfect online self-paced resource that can accompany a US geography course. Each state lesson has factual information about that state as well as information about and a video to listen to the state song. I love using each lesson as we study each state!" ~ Leah Courtney, homeschool mom of four and blogger at As We Walk Along the Road
