Students take great pride in their accomplishment when they are able to match the U.S. states and capitals! These tests make assessment quick and easy! In this "States and Capitals Tests" download, you will receive a set of 8 ready-made U.S. states & capitals tests, along with 8 answer keys.
Students are often required to memorize the 50 U.S. states and capitals in 4th grade. Although the time frame varies by state, these tests can be used at any grade level, whenever you would like to assess this skill. They may also be used for review at any time.
The tests are divided into four easy-to-check (and learn) sections:
1) the Northeast Region (11 states)
2) the Southeast Region (12 states)
3) the Middle West Region (12 states)
4) the West & Southwest Regions (15 states)
Each of these four tests comes in two different formats:
MATCHING - Students match each state found in the first column with the appropriate capital found in the second column.
WRITTEN FORM - Students write the name of the appropriate capital next to each state given. A word bank containing the region's capitals is provided.
If you would you like to provide your students with a fun way to prepare (and practice) for these tests (or quizzes), check out the "States & Capitals Crossword Puzzles" link -- located up (and to your right) on this page. These crossword puzzles make great practice and study sheets. The crossword puzzles each contain the same states and capitals per region as designated on these tests. Use them anytime your students need study, practice, or review!
Have fun this year as your students learn the U.S. states and capitals!
