    states and capitals
    By Cheryl

    Clip to ScrapBook
    My kids loved learning states and capitals last year. I started with a poster set I found at a school supply store - one poster for each student. They had to label the states and capitals and we would discuss different things about them - current events, history,etc. Then I had a card game to match the states and capitals and we did it as a whole class with the kids in teams. Rule was you could only name one until every person in your group had a chance. THey started playing it in their free time. I might give a capital and they had to come up with the state or I would give the state and they come up with the capital. Easy stuff, but they loved it!
