PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I used to teach the regions, states & capitals years ago to my fourth graders. Then, they moved this to the third grade curriculum. Now it's back to me in fourth grade. When going through old files, I remembered giving my kids "flash cards" to help them remember the states and their matching capitals. This is still a difficult thing for students to learn.

I've updated my flash cards and turned them into memory cards to make a game and hopefully make it more fun to learn this information.

I copy these cards on card stock and have students cut them out and keep them in baggies. There is a name label and directions card for each baggie, too. To play: (Played with 1-4 students.) Turn cards face down on the floor in an array. Flip over two cards at a time, looking for a matching state & capital. If you find a match, you get another turn. The winner is the player with the most matching pairs at the end.

If this is too many copies, you could easily just make a few class sets for students to practice during rotations in your room. If I were doing this, I might laminate the pieces to help them last as long as possible.

Enjoy!
