    Kids will easily pick up their states, capitals, and U.S. geography as they yell, slap cards down, and use their quick-thinking skills to win state cards and put an impossibly scrambled-up United States back to rights. Each player receives 5 State Cards to create their own "State Line", along with a U.S. map. Then, as a Scramble card is uncovered, players race to fit one of their states to the Scramble card, with clues such as matching the color of the state to the Scramble card, or finding words or names within the state capital. Each of the state cards contains the name of the state, a state outline map, the capital city as well as the state nickname, and, of course, any of this information is fair game to be matched with a Scramble card. When a player is able to match one of their State cards with a Scramble card, they immediately slap it down on the Scramble card and yell out the name of the state. Or, a "Go the Distance" card is played, and the players have to determine which of them has a state that is the closest to that in question, and of course, if they have the lucky card, more slapping and yelling goes on. The game can be played with 2-4 players, and several variations are included to keep it challenging for players of all ages. Loud, noisy, and boisterous as it is, there's plenty of hidden motivations here for them to pick up vital information about each state - and remember it! - Jess

    Your kids will enjoy working on their U.S. Geography skills as they assemble these fifty-one large puzzle pieces that come together to form a finished 2' x 3' floor puzzle. The puzzle pieces are larger than your average puzzles (great for little hands) and are easy-to-clean as they have a special surface allowing you to simply wipe them down if they get dirty or sticky. Larger states are individual pieces, while smaller states are clumped together. Each state is brightly colored and clearly identified with the name, capital, and representative illustration. You will be "floored" at how quickly your children will learn their U.S. Geography with the help of this fun and educational puzzle! – elise

    Isn't it about time that they came out with a U.S. edition? The game includes a U.S. map game board, 50 state cards, color-coded by region, 6 blank state cards and 120 colored playing pieces. The state cards are chock-full of information, including the state flag, postal code, date of admission, area, population, capital, region, industry, bordering states, motto, bird, flower, tree, nickname, tourist attractions, number of representatives and more. Like Where in the World? this game has four types of game play, including Statesman, Junior Representative, Senior Representative and Solitaire. Statesman focuses on one or more regions of the U.S. Players isolate a group of state cards in that region and players draw a card and try to provide that state's information for the chosen category(s). Junior Representative asks players to identify the state based on selected facts, while Senior Representative adds a twist where players incorporate current news and events. Solitaire play is great for test prep and helps players memorize state facts. A solidly educational addition to your U.S. geography studies! – Jess

     Suitable for use in classrooms or by home educators, this full-color magnetic U.S. map puzzle helps geography students to recognize the correct shape and location of each state. This hands-on resource contains 43 durable, magnetic puzzle pieces (most states have their own piece, while smaller states have been grouped together), along with a helpful outline map grid that shows the capital of each state. Most states hold a small icon of an object representative of that state, such as longhorn cattle and cowboy boots for Texas, and Mt. Rushmore on South Dakota. The puzzle can be assembled with or without the use of the included paper outline map sheet. An activity guide is included as well that contains a number of fun facts about the states. This resource is a nice hands-on geography supplement. Assembled puzzle measures approximately 13” high by 19” wide. ~ Mike

    Teach your child the states and capitals with this fun magnetic set. Each state fits onto its colored spot on the provided magnetic background (18" x 12½") of the United States. The colored state magnets contain the state capital and often another major city. The set includes 47 magnets (some of the smaller state magnets contain more than one state). Please note that the magnets are thin, so you may not want to bend them too much releasing them from the sheet for the first time or they will not stick well on the background. ~ Carl

    We're all familiar with puzzles of the U.S. that consist of the 50 states of the Union (I love the ones where they never fit back in quite the same way they came out… just try to fit Connecticut back in!). I have not however, in all my puzzle-working years seen an equivalent world puzzle, consisting of country-shaped pieces to fit back together, until I saw this one. This beautiful global puzzle consists of 600 pieces, and when finished, measures 36" x 18". 193 countries in the world have all been carefully cut and crafted to form whole continents, and each is clearly labeled with its name as well as its capital city. In the case of the U.S. and Canada, most of the states and territories are even cut into their own pieces as well, except for the very small ones. Well, great, you might say, it'll really help me learn my geography, especially in regards to which countries are neighbors, but the earth is, after all, primarily ocean. What will I learn from linking all those blue pieces? I'm glad you asked! The interlocking ocean pieces each contain the name, capital, population and area of each of the 193 countries… alphabetically. This takes the "guesswork" out of the oceans, and imparts a little more information to the puzzle worker as well. Also, this forms a great framework to finish the puzzle by adding the land masses last, as most of the country shapes are not exactly conducive to interlocking. Pull this out for a family evening together, or for geography class… if you're anything like me, you won't be able to tear yourself away from a good puzzle, and the geographical knowledge will sink in almost automatically! - Jess
