    Written in a similar style to the other Don't Know Much About books, this journey through the 50 states presents several questions and answers about each state as it is covered. Each page features one state (except for Texas, which of course needs two), with a small outline map of the state and other basic facts about the state, including the state bird and flower near the top of the page. Then several questions about the state are posed, some about more basic information about the state, and some involving more trivia-like information, such as "How many trees does it take to make a gallon of maple syrup?" for Vermont,"What is a keystone, anyway?" for Pennsylvania, or "Why were Nebraska's first settlers called 'sodbusters'?" for Nebraska. Other small interesting facts and state jokes are included as well. Also, a complete map of the U.S. is featured inside the front and back covers. Not a comprehensive look at each state, but an entertaining and informative read.

      If you’ve considered purchasing the larger Word Teaser sets, this set is a great option to try first. This is a mini deck with 50 cards (rather than 150 in the larger). Each card contains a question regarding a U.S. state along with a hint on one side, and then information on the back. For example, “What U.S. state is only about 55 miles from the Russian border?” The hint is: “This state could easily hold Texas, California, and Montana in its borders.” Although there is just one question, the real wealth of information is on the second side. Each card becomes a “fast facts” card about a state, with the name, abbreviation, capital, population, land area, date it entered the union, nickname, and motto. With all these facts, this set is great for create-your-own games or supplementing a unit study on the United States. Cards are 2 ½” x 3 ½” and come in a storage box. For 2 or more players. ~ Ruth

    These sturdy magnets provide a fun, hands-on activity for students to learn about the fifty states. Shaped like their individual state, each magnet includes information about state capitals, state birds and flowers, state flags and nicknames, the date each state was admitted into the union, and population numbers. Each colorful magnet is approximately 1/8” in thickness and sticks to any magnetic surface. Magnets are easily stored in a wooden box with a sliding lid. Please note that the sizes are not proportionate even though shapes are true, though simplified (Delaware is as tall as Texas). This allows all the information to fit on each state, but states will not fit together to make an accurate representation of America!  ~ Gina

    This maze book is filled with 50 intricate mazes - one for each of the United States. The cool thing about these mazes is that each is in the shape of a featured state. Capitals and large cities are labeled, and the actual maze is contained inside the outline of the state. Puzzlers must make their way from the state's capital to one of its major cities. The passages in the mazes are fairly thin and somewhat challenging, so older students won't be disappointed with overly-easy solutions. Answers are included at the end. 60 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    What study of the states would be complete without a little coloring? Well, it's not really an essential, but it can reinforce the learning. Attractive blackline coloring pages are brimming with information about each of the 50 states, educating as they are colored. Which state is the Sunflower State? The Land of Opportunity? Which state's motto is "Ever Upward"? Informative captions provide each state's nickname, motto, flower, bird, tree, capital, principal rivers and mountains, notable attractions, and other special information.

    Accurate outline drawings of each state are prominent, with a small inset map of the United States showing its location (by shading). Some details, like mountains, rivers, and lakes, appear on the state. The capital's location is starred, but no printed names appear - so you can have your children do a little research and mapwork for extra benefit. This also makes the book usable as a reproducible map source. Surrounding the state are other blackline figures of the state bird, flower, related plant and animal life, and other significant features (New York, for example, includes the Statue of Liberty). Now your students can color their way to U.S. geographic literacy!

Each state is introduced with the basic facts including capital, state bird and flower, major cities, and so on. A little dash of state history is thrown in before we move on to the main course - finding out about the state foods, and then actually cooking one up! The recipes are straight forward enough that older kids can make these on their own, while younger kids will probably need some help. For those less proficient in the kitchen than Mom, the first pages serve as an introduction to the tools of the kitchen, as well as some tips and advice on cooking and cooking safely.
