States and Capitals CD Kit - Audio Memory/Troxel
The States & Capitals Songs CD Kit includes a sound track with 9 songs plus 4 assessment songs and a large 25"x 36" map of the USA with 172 items to label. Students can color the project map while they listen to the songs. The lyrics of the songs are on the map. Students point to the states on the map while they sing. Each state is geographically connected to the next state. MP3 samples and downloads are available on teacherspayteachers.com. This is a great activity for jumping across the states on a large floor map of the USA.
The USA is divided into 5 sections: the northern border, the southern border, the eastern border, the middle and the Pacific states. Each of those sections is a song. After students learn the southern border, from California to Florida, they learn the capitals in the same order. During the test song, they have to remember the name of the state and the capital that comes next as they go from west to east. Each answer is echoed back in the song. Appropriate for all ages. Extra maps may be purchased for $3.00.
A DVD is also available for $15. Free Shipping. It has a computer animated map. Samples are on YouTube.
The States and Capitals CD only may be purchased for $14. Free shipping.
