Printable USA Map and State Capital Flashcards

Boo has to learn where the states are this year. My first reaction? Oh no….that means I have to learn them too. I was never that great at geography. I wanted a fun and unique way to help her learn them, as well as the capitals, and worked with Lindsay from Pen and Paint to come up with these fun illustrated printable flashcards:

Lindsay even made a printable map to accompany the flashcards to help learn the location of each state:

    Holy cow! We didn’t have to learn the states until 4th grade and then we learned the capitals in 5th grade. And I remember this because I got an award for being the only one to get 100% on that test. I can’t believe she’s having to learn all of that at FIVE YEARS OLD! Good luck to you and Boo! She can do it!

  2. Joy T. says

    WOW!!! That is YOUNG! My daughter is in 2nd grade at a private school and hasn’t learned them yet. I got a really nice puzzle from Costco that has all the states and as you put the pieces in it says the name of the state and the capital.

    Have you seen ‘Stack the States’ for iPad? Awesome game and my kids learned capitals and locations of states in about a month. And we weren’t even trying – it’s just that fun :)

  4. says

    These are great (: I missed the part where we learned them too. I moved in 5th grade…my old school did them later in 5th and my new school learned them in 4th. Now that I’m a teacher, maybe I should study up!

  5. KerryQ says

    I would be at a loss to put the states in the right place, especially in the middle. The Stack the States app has been great for my kids. Also the Scrambled States of America book and game are great, too. (Aren’t Kindergarteners supposed to be building with blocks, and jumping rope?- don’t get me started.)
