    Learn the U.S. states, capitals, and flags with this colorful and unique 500-piece jigsaw puzzle. Incredibly, the puzzle is actually a series of 50 state-shaped mini-puzzles that you'll eventually connect into a larger U.S. map. For example, Utah is made up of 11 pieces, and the separate Alaska and Hawaii puzzles are made up of 20 and 10 pieces, respectively. Another very cool feature is that each state is its state flag, instead of the typical solid colored background with illustrated points of interest. This will really bring the flags to life more than just featuring them around the border or as extra "filler" on the puzzle. The fact that you can assemble the states independently also makes the puzzle a great tool for studying the states individually. You could assemble each state as studied and easily track your progress by connecting the finished states. When you're done with the whole U.S., your map will be complete! Assembled puzzle is shaped like the U.S. and measures 32" x 16." - Jess

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

    This colorful rendition of the U.S. measures 2' x 3'. Most of the states are separate pieces, but some of the smaller Northeastern states are grouped together. Michigan's Upper Peninsula and Alaska's island chain are included with the border instead of the corresponding state pieces. All pieces fit within the interlocking border. Each piece exhibits the state's name, capital, and pictures of famous landmarks, state flowers or birds, or other representative pictures.

    This activity book is full of mazes, word searches, crossword puzzles, and trivia about the 50 United States. States are grouped by regions (New England, Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic, Southeastern, Southern, Midwestern, Western, Southwestern, West Coast, and Non-Contiguous), and each region has one or two worksheets that provide fun puzzles about that area. Black and white illustrations with speech bubbles also share facts and statistics about that area. The information doesn't go into great detail about each state, but it does a good job of showing the highlights of each state and what they're most known for. In the middle of the book is a map of the United States with room to place a sticker on every state. Included is a two-page spread of 75 stickers. There are 50 license plate stickers which show how the plates look in full-color. These are great to put on the supplied map whenever you get a chance to visit each state. The other 25 stickers are also included, which feature famous monuments and other objects that kids can place wherever they want. A complete answer key for all the puzzle pages is included. The perfect book to bring along on those family road trips (or for some imagined traveling right at home). 24 pgs. ~ Rachel

    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 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

    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

    If your kids have outgrown our simpler U.S. map puzzles with state-shaped pieces and cartoon landmarks, hand them a more advanced puzzle to work on. This 24" x 36", 500 piece jigsaw puzzle features a colorful political map of the U.S. that resembles an atlas page in its look, feel, and level of detail. Major interstates, highways, cities, bodies of water, airports, and other landmarks are clearly labeled. A key located at the bottom of the map provides information on interpreting scale, city populations, state capitals, types of roads, and more. Each puzzle piece measures approximately 2 ¼" x 1 ¼", with the pieces fitting together in a challenging jigsaw manner (no separation by state). This is the most detailed U.S. map puzzle we carry—adults will enjoy putting this one together, too. ~ Lisa

    This workbook can be used as a stand alone study of US geography, or it can be used in conjunction with the book Fifty States Under God to further explore the geography of each state. Arranged in order of statehood, the study of each state is its own lesson, and discuses three key areas: land regions, borders and geographical features, and major cities. Extensive use is made of state maps in each of these areas to help illustrate these points and features. During each lesson on individual states, students are periodically referred back to an overall map of the US, so they definitely get lots of practice finding and placing states and locations across the country. Prior to beginning the lessons on the states, there are 3 lessons covering the geography of the US as a whole as well as a quiz on US geography and an introduction to geography from a Christian perspective. At various points throughout the course, there are 4 geography overview and testing sections, each one encompassing 3 lessons. The appendix contains extra copies of maps, the tests, and the answer keys. There are schedules included for completing the workbook as either a one-semester course or a one-year course, and there is also a page of suggestions for how to schedule this book with Fifty States Under God. The workbook is spiral-bound and softcover. – Zach

    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!

    Any description of this atlas has to include a suggestion to view the sample pages online. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words! Looking at this atlas is a visual (and informational) treat. Each state (and Washington D.C.) covers a two-page spread. It has the appearance of looking like a desk blotter; with a journal open showing a map and a brief overview of the state. Surrounding the map are notes, dates, facts, illustrations and trivia "paper clipped" or "taped" in place. Readers are introduced to all of the basics: state birds, flowers, seals, flags, statistics, quarters, events, people, and much more. The maps are topographical with major cities and Interstate highways marked. Thematic maps show farm resources, expansion, population, climate and regions; and the paperback atlas ends with a state almanac and a list of geography terms defined. – Zach
