    These are the nicest state and capital cards we've seen. Front of card displays outlined state with star where capital is located. A U.S. map below, with the state in contrasting color, shows its location. Cards are color-coded according to region and have the year of the state's admission into the United States up top. On the back of the card are basic facts about the state: capital, date of statehood, flower, nickname, and bird. Main industries and attractions are itemized, followed by an interesting fact about the state, and two "quizzer" questions. A small piece of a map on the bottom shows the state shaded, with bordering states identified. There's a lot of information here for variation in your drill.

    Help kids learn the states and capitals with this easy-to-follow workbook. The book teaches the states and capitals using regions and hints, then shows students how to do a report on the states they are studying. Handy reference pages, such as lists of state capitals and famous people from various states, are provided. States are divided into five regions: west, southwest, midwest, northeast and southeast. For example, with the Pacific coast states, students learn capitals and when the states joined the U.S. They are given hints like "COW" to remember California, Oregon, and Washington. Later there is a test which recalls these hints. All answers are in the back, and kids are encouraged to use these to check their work. You could remove them if you wanted to check their work yourself and assign a grade.

    When it comes to the State Report writing, a page of clear instruction steers kids in the right direction on these topics: gathering information, note cards, keeping track of sources, introducing your state, location map, history, geography, population, cities, natural resources, climate, government, education, economy, employment, points of interest, famous people, state quarter (money), personal recommendations and final touches. Sounds thorough, doesn't it? A checklist guides kids in their writing. All in all, this is a useful writing guide and review of U.S. geography. Reproducible. ~ Sara

    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.

    Perhaps the best way to learn the US States and Capitals is to travel within the US. Since we can't all do this, maybe the second-best way is through flash cards. This set contains 51 flash cards, 57 fact cards and 1 activity card. The cards are approximately 6" by 3", white with color pictures. Each flash card features an outline map of the US with a line connecting an enlarged picture of a state, with its colored-in counterpart on the map. A yellow star indicates the position of the capital. On the reverse of the flash card you would find the full name of the state, state initials and the name of the capital. (The 51st card is for Washington D.C.) The 57 fact cards again feature an outline of the state with a yellow star and beneath it a picture of that state's flag. The reverse gives the state name and initials, the state capital, nickname, bird, flower, tree, date of statehood, a fun fact about the state and an outline of the US with that one state filled in. The extra seven cards are for the USA as a whole, Washington D.C., and the five permanently inhabited US territories. The activity card suggests nine ways to use your cards by yourself or with a team (or teams). - Genevieve

    Based on the popular Great States! Board Game, this travel version is a great product in its own right! Included are 100 playing cards that measure 3â₝ x 4.5â₝, with ideas for four fun games to play. Each of the fifty states has two cards in the set; one asks about the capital and largest city in the state and the other asks what other states the state borders and another trivia question about famous landmarks or other state facts. With two trivia questions on each card, there are 200 questions in all (four for each state). Additional, random, interesting tidbits of information are included on the bottom of each card. The front side of each card displays an outline of the featured state with the surrounding states faded. The most popular way to play with a group is to shuffle the cards and then take turns reading questions from the cards. The first person to answer the question correctly wins the card and the player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner (for a break from the game, you can use them as flashcards, too). To help with the tricky questions, a full-color, fold-out map of the USA (measuring 11â₝ x 8.5â₝) is included. Learn important state facts with this card game and have fun while youââ‚™re doing it. For 2+ players. ~ Rachel

    The Sequence game we've all played (and loved) just got a little more educational! Instead of illustrated playing cards on the board, two each of all fifty states are featured. And instead of using playing cards to place chips, these cards feature colored state outlines, a star to show the location of the capital, and the name of the capital at the top of the card. The game is played the same otherwise, with each player drawing cards, matching the card to a state on the board, and placing a chip there (for more details, please see our description in our Not Just for Fun section). Like the original version, five chips in a row wins – but it may take some strategic chip-moving to get you there!

Each state-shaped sticker has the state's name, its capital, and an illustration representing something from that state. The map folds to a sixth of its size and stores easily in its cardboard tote.
