Activity: Memorizing the United States Map
You may not have ever traveled outside of your own state, but knowing the country’s geography is important when it comes to choosing a college, looking for job opportunities, or even just planning vacations!
For an interactive activity related to the things that start with U, try memorizing the United States map.
If you don’t already have a U.S. map in your house, you can find one online and print it out. Look for a blank U.S. map with the states outlined, but not labeled with their names.
Your goal will be to match each state with its name!
You can use several methods to quiz yourself on the states:
- Laminate the map or cover it with packing tape and use an erasable marker to label the states.
- Label the states in pencil so you can erase them and re-label them as you learn.
- Use small sticky notes to label each state, so you can move or remove them as you learn.
Before you begin labeling the map, you’ll want to be familiar with the names of all 50 states; if you don’t already have them memorized, make a list of them.
For an added challenge, you can try to memorize both the states and their capital cities!
