    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.

    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

States are arranged alphabetically and each includes a full-page map of the state with major cities and the capital marked. One full page has space to write the date visited and with whom, purpose/reason for the visit, places visited, what I enjoyed most, what I found most interesting, and what you would like to do on the next visit. The next two pages allow space for notes or journaling about the experience. There are even some interesting facts printed on the note page.

      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

    Contemporary history resources frequently skip over the Christian heritage of our nation. In fact, I would say many of us were never taught that every state in our great nation intentionally acknowledges God in their constitution. Thankfully, this new reference book strives to set the record straight, teaching children tidbits of Christian history from each state along with directly quoting the constitutions of all 50 states in reference to God.

    Organized by date of admission to the union, there are 3 dedicated pages for each state which covers an overview including the state bird/flower, song and motto and a ranking by area and population. Important historical dates, state facts and famous people along with weird or unusual attractions are included, along with the constitutional quote and Christian history or facts about each state. Also included is brief look at Washington, D.C. and a summary of the inhabited and uninhabited US Territories. Colorful pages, full color photos and illustrations, and loads of vital information for your history and geography studies makes this a must have resource for your home or church library. 160 pgs. pb ~Deanne

    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

    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!

    This reproducible workbook and curriculum guide is from YWM, publishers of the Heroes of History series comes. Though a great companion to the series, it stands alone and doesn't require the use of the biographies. Each of the 50 states (with an extra for the District of Columbia) receives 2 reproducible worksheets in the book. The main worksheet (identical for every state) prompts students to research and find such information as date of statehood, state motto, current population, natural resources, number of representatives in Congress, and more. It also has students identify features like bodies of water, highest point, state capital, bordering states, and more. Students draw and label these features on the second worksheet for the state, which is a black and white outline map of the featured state. A very effective and interactive way to teach state facts to students. The book includes several appendices with valuable items like additional maps and exercises (for the 13 colonies, the Louisiana Purchase, etc.), additional assignments like oral reports and creating timelines, a list of resources for state information, and more.128 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
