Are your kids still memorizing the states and capitals for Social Studies? Well, here is a great little resource to help student practice or to use as an assessment tool. The crossword puzzle has all 50 states/capitals. I provided the name of the state and students complete the puzzle by answering with the capital. I have also included a word bank of all the capitals on a separate page as a reference. If you want to use the puzzle as an assessment, then you may choose not to use the word bank. You may also choose to use the word bank as a means of differentiation. Either way, it works. An answer key is also provided.
