    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, doesnt 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

    The Sequence game weve 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!

    This colorful set of flashcards will help your children learn the state capitals in clever ways. On one side is a map showing where the state and its capital are located, and on the other is a fun illustration with a saying that will help you remember the state capitals. As an example, the capital of New York is Albany, so the picture shows the state covered with rabbit faces, captioned All Bunnies. The included resource CD-ROM has additional questions, usage ideas, printable tests, and even crossword puzzles. Quick Whats the capital of Massachusetts? Its the Boss Town (Boston)!

    This set is worth getting for the CD alone. It begins with children reciting "The Pledge of Allegiance" and "The Star-Spangled Banner" then, in music, introduces each state with an interesting fact about the states history, geography, or a famous attraction. Then the music transitions into an alphabetical listing of each state, slow at first and then faster. Both kids and adults sing, and the songs are catchy and fun. Then, with rhythm and repetition, kids sing each state with its capital. Afterwards, a woman sings the capitals and pauses for students to sing the state out loud. The CD closes with "America the Beautiful." Twelve tracks are included on the CD (runtime is 30 minutes). The workbook has been scaled back from 96 pages to 48 and features full-color worksheet activities that emphasize state names, capitals, nicknames, regions, abbreviations, a state quiz, state identification game and more. Lyrics and an answer key that were previously found in printed format in the workbook have been moved to printable PDF files on the CD. ~ Rachel

    Perhaps the best way to learn the US States and Capitals is to travel within the US. Since we cant 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 states 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

    What study of the states would be complete without a little coloring? Well, its 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 states motto is Ever Upward? Informative captions provide each states 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 capitals 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!

    Written in a similar style to the other Dont 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 Nebraskas 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 storybook is a fun supplement to any study of the States, or just funny to read for pure entertainment. Full-color pages give unique personalities to all the cartoony states, and kids will learn the shape and general area of each state simply by reading through the book. Its the story about two bored states (Kansas and Nebraska) who throw a party to meet other states. At the party, the states decide they will all switch places so they can see other parts of the country. All the states are excited until they spend some time in their new locations (for example, Florida and Minnesota switch spots and Florida freezes while Minnesota gets sunburn). In the end, the states decide they belong in their original places after all. The story is cute and funny, and little comments the states make add a lot of humor. In the back of the book, each cartoon state is shown along with facts of the states nickname, capital city, square miles, and population. 40 pgs, pb. Also available in a book and CD set, read by actors Lorelei King and Oliver Wyman. ~ Rachel

    Just like the math Learning Wrap-Ups, this set provides a fun and hands-on way to drill and practice U.S. capitals. Basically, you have 10 hard plastic cards shaped like keys (6 tall x 1.5 wide) that are attached at top, so you wont be losing any of them. On the left side of the card are state names and on the right are capital names. A string is included with the cards, and you wrap the string around the cards in such a way that the string leads from the state to the matching capital. A cool feature of this product is that it is self-checking; after youve finished matching all the capitals, the back of the card will show if all the strings go to the right place. There are 12 states/capitals on each card, so each one is presented more than once. Its definitely a better way to learn the capitals than just sitting down and memorizing them. ~ Rachel

    Add a yummy dimension to your state studies by cooking up and sampling a "signature" food from each state. The fifty states are split up into seven regional groups. 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. Lets see, well start with Rhode Island "Coffee Milkshakes," and then move on to Massachusetts for Boston baked beans, and then head to Illinois for deep-dish pizza, and on to Washington for baked apples and then to. - Jess
