This is a great activity to help the kids get more familiar with the locations of the states. Any map from a textbook or atlas will help them solve the clues. An answer key is included.
This can be a great homework assignment, time filler, or even a perfect addition to a sub plan. I also used this as a Friday Fun activity. The kids had to work independently and in complete silence. The first three students to complete the puzzle earned a candy at which point I allowed the rest of the kids to break their silence and work together.
