     This Thinking Tree notebook is really DIY: in content and in how you choose to complete it. There are 6 pages to accomplish the same tasks for each of the 50 states. Begin with coloring in the state on a US outline map with the capital, population and state motto. Then, fill in boxes with facts – current events, what to see, the flag, famous quote, monuments and popular foods. Next, identify the locations of the capital and other large cities, important landmarks, national parks, major highways and rivers, and anything else you find interesting. The following page documents historical events, famous people, draw the state seal and design a postage stamp. Then read a state-oriented book and summarize a scene and/or watch a movie and draw a scene (you’ll need to do your own research; no suggestions provided). The final page is titled, “What do you want to do in ___?” Note that these outside resources are required: your choice of various library books and documentaries/movies, Google Earth, Wikipedia, a U.S. atlas, a U.S. map, colored pencils or gel pens, black pens and #2 pencils. Pages are reproducible within your home/family. 8.5x11”, black & white, sc. ~ Sara

    A geography supplement for your social studies curriculum, this is a book of reproducible pages designed to help students learn not only names and locations of countries, continents, and regions, but also some of the geographic features of these places. It focuses on areas of the world other than the United States, namely: Canada; Mexico, Central America and nearby islands; South America; Europe; Africa; Russia; Southwest Asia; South Asia; Southeast Asia; East Asia; and Oceania. Students will need other resources like atlases and encyclopedias in order to answer some of the questions. There are twenty reproducible, consumable pages, and answers are provided. ~ Zach

    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

      A fun classroom or home reference, this 11.5 x 16.5 inch write-on/wipe-off magnetic map will captivate any child. The 50 states are easily distinguishable with their vibrant colors, but unlabeled. Use your favorite dry erase marker to fill in state names, abbreviations, capitols, cities, or landforms. Use the map to quiz children or assign them the task of filling in a state’s information. The heavy duty magnetic back holds tight to magnetic surfaces. When it’s time to take down or reposition, it lifts off easily. A fun way for children to practice and improve their United States geography skills! -EmilyG

    GeoCards are jumbo sized cards – 6" x 4.5" – that combine visual appeal with 5 easy-to-learn games. The world deck includes 50 cards of the world's largest countries and the USA deck covers all 50 states. The games included are straightforward and differ slightly between decks. Both include games of solitaire, name the capitals, war, and 20 questions. The world deck then includes a game for collecting all the countries from a single continent, while the USA deck includes a game where you match the borders of neighboring states. The cards are glossy, bright, and colorful, with one side showing with the country or state, its population, and area; the other side shows the country or state surrounded by its neighbors and with its capital (and state nickname) labeled.

     This two-sided dry erase map board features a white outline of the fifty states that is printed on a light blue background on one side, with the reverse side functioning as an ordinary whiteboard. The board is a nice size, and it is sturdy for use with young students. Use with a fine-tip dry erase marker for labeling states and capitals, or bring out the colors to mark geographical features such as mountains, rivers, or even notable landmarks such as the Grand Canyon or Mt. Rushmore. Measures 18” x 12”. ~ Mike

    Mixing chance and strategy, you can only win by being the first player to construct roads that connect all four of your designated cities. Chance – because you never know how many miles of road you will be allowed to build on each turn, or if one of your designated cities will suddenly and randomly change, or if you will have one more, or one less city to connect. Strategy – because you can use or remove the roads other players construct (they can also use yours) and you are sometimes given the opportunity to create detours and road closures to foil the plans of your opponents. All moves are based on the draw of a Chaos Card – you begin with three and draw a new one at the start of each turn. Miami to Minneapolis can be a long way, until you suddenly get switched to Tampa! Or…it could be even worse! Learn the geography of the 48 states and the best routes across the country in this game full of twists and turns. For 2-6 players. – Zach

    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

    …Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. That's the last of them, all fifty states. Where to now? I think the next step is to start in on some of the nearly 200 unique and varied countries just waiting to be explored. This workbook looks at the seven continents in turn – introducing each one with a map and a description of the predominant geography. Several countries from that continent or region are then profiled – thirty in total – through a riddle format. Students are presented with the flag; stats such as capital, largest cities, population, land area, highest mountain, ethnic language, main religion, government, and basic currency; and a page full of geographic descriptions about topography, land use, climate, natural resources, and people and must use all of that information to guess which country is being described. There are also lots of map activities, puzzles and charts to further explore and review each country. Also included are a list of world geography websites, a glossary of geographic terms, a review test, and an answer key. This book is black and white reproducible and is in the same format as United States Geography: Where in the U.S. Are You?. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    Instead of using several different map skills books, this volume provides all you need for several years! It uses a building approach, starting with mapping simple floor plans in the first section. In it, students learn and map small areas, then learn about map symbols, directions and compass rose, map scales, and look at some different types of maps. Additional sections add skills and experience with both reading and construction of maps. A U.S. Geography section presents concepts of boundaries and rivers and work with political, physical, product and climate maps. Then, the United States is explored by region and, within region, state. A page is devoted to each state, ideal for use with state studies and memorization of states and capitals. Students complete their study of the Western Hemisphere with map work encompassing Canada, Mexico, Central and South America. Grid maps are given their own small section before the final Global Geography section where students encounter continents and oceans, hemispheres, latitude and longitude and time zones. An answer key and a final review wraps up this colorful volume. 416 pgs.

    Following the same great format as Trail Guide to World Geography (see description), this book focuses on U.S. Geography. This trail guide includes 5-minute daily drills, mapping, building a geography notebook--or using the optional student notebook--and a wide variety of additional projects. The literature unit in this book focuses on the Lewis and Clark expedition, using the book The Captain's Dog, by Roland Smith. Heavily used resources include the Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book or maps available on the Student Notebook CD. Other resources are also recommended to help enhance the study; these are listed below for your convenience. In this edition, all students use the Desk Atlas of the United States. A Geographical Terms Chart is recommended with these and all Trail Guide studies. We do not offer the chart that is recommended; however, it is available through Geography Matters. This Trail Guide was revised and updated in 2015 and includes a new QuickStart Section and new assignments throughout. Please note: students must use 2ed of Student Notebook with this edition. ~ Rachel S.
