Version 2 - 50 state capital name cards are included along with connect four game board with abbreviations. (Answer key also included)
How to play:
-Student draws a state or capital card (depending on version choice) and then will color the corresponding state abbreviation on the game board.
-Just like the popular game of Connect Four, the object is to try to get four states in a row. (Each student needs a different color crayon to distinguish between the two players.)
-Student will circle their groups of four in a row.
-The game continues until all cards are used.
-Students then tally how many groups of four they circled in the space provided at the bottom of the page.
Also - The cards can also be used without game board to match the states with their capitals - similar to a matching or memory card game.
