    I love using centers in my classroom of 4th grade as well. I always include the USA states and capitals in my centers.

    I made concentration cards by writing the names of every capital and state on index cards. The cards can be broken up into the different regions. Many different groups can be playing at the same time. I just let them play for about 10 minutes at each station.

    The cards can also be used in a "Go Fish" Game or as flash cards. Many uses for them!

    I also made a large map of the United States on felt backed table cloth. I drew the map using an opeg projector. The kids use the map and a coin. They toss the coin on a state, and have to name both the state and capital. I give them a list of the states so that they can intial the states that they correctly name. The one with the most wins!
