As we’ve begun to study the American Revolution, there is a glaring lack of knowledge in regards to basic American Geography. We will take this next week to study the states and their capitals, using our Multiple Intelligences to practice and learn the best. Here are some great games (and a great video) to get you learning!
The Most Popular (amongst parents, too): Name all 50 states as fast as you can.
This is another version of Game #2, dragging states into their correct places. A very tough one, but gets easier when you’ve placed 10 states or so.
This is by National Geographic, and you can test your knowledge of all countries, continents and states/provinces throughout the world. Might be tougher on slooooow computers.
Another great game – you need to draw each state, identify it, and name its capital. Lots of different learners should like it – and learn from it!
Finally, a completely new game that not only requires identification of a state, but also asks you to type in the capital name, too.
And if you’re not having an easy time thinking “you can do it,” check out this kid. Many of you lose any valid excuse when a kid can’t even dress himself knows all his states and capitals. We’ll do capitals later, but the example stills stands. And he even eats while doing it! He must be Food Smart!
