Children can sing along with this CD to learn names and locations of the states and their capitals. The CD has fourteen songs with catchy tunes. The kit comes with a 25" by 36" map which children label and color. The CD is also sold on its own. The CD is great for about grades 3 through 6.
Children who benefit from a more visual presentation might prefer the DVD version States & Capitals Video with animated color graphics. The DVD runs 30 minutes.
For slightly older students in grade 4 through 9, you might want to use the reproducible 50 States Crosswords book. It has a puzzle for each state plus Washington, D.C.
