    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

    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

     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

     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

    Make the most of table time by using interactive placemats. This set has 50, one for each state, which your child can write on or add the stickers to (25 included.) They are sweet and colorful, each showing things kids are interested in learning: nicknames, capitals, birds, mammals, fun facts, etc. There is an activity to doodle something on every mat. Since they are paper, you could laminate them to keep and use at meal times again and again. Each mat is 13x10” and blank on the backside. A plastic 12x9” map of the USA comes with and can be used as wipeable placemat or just as reference. This would make a great sibling gift for a family with a new baby! ~ Sara

    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

      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
