This PowerPoint presentation challenges students to name that state! Each state includes a photograph and three clues (one clue is always the state capital). Other clues include state nicknames, key products, history, and topography. All 50 states (plus D.C.) are included, and all states are grouped by region.
I usually do a few slides at a time at the beginning of class as bell-work. This PowerPoint works great as either an introduction or a review of the geography of the United States. Students really enjoy the photographs and the challenge of naming each state! Answers are provided on each slide.
