How many hours have you spent quizzing your grade schooler on their states and capitals for a social studies test? Here’s a fun way to help both of you learn.
States & Capitals is a program to help teach the names of the 50 states and their capitals. It also helps you identify the state by shape and location within the United States.
The naming game takes you through all fifty states and records your time. You’ll be surprised at what you thought you knew, and how competitive it can become, when you can’t get a better time or score than your nine year old. (They’re really good at memory stuff.)
Play the memory game to reinforce the state shape, learn its capital and the state abbreviation.
Check out the map, and zoom in to an aerial view of each capital building. In the area and want to visit? Jump to Google Maps and route your way to the capital.
