Ditch the Flash Cards! This matching game will allow your students to quickly learn the U.S. States and their capitals.
All 50 U.S. states, the state capitals, and the state flags are presented on colorful double sided cards (See preview file and Thumbnails for details). Players take turns revealing one U.S. state card followed by one state capital card to try to make a matching pair. If the player gets a match, he or she gets to go again. After all matches have been found, the winner is the player who has collected the most matches.
Cards come in two decks:
*The U.S. States deck contains 50 cards with the name and picture of a U.S. state.
*The State Capitals deck contains 50 cards with the name of a capital and the corresponding state flag in full color.
You are downloading a zip file that contains a .pdf of the game cards (both decks) and a .pdf of the game rules.
The game cards are centered both horizontally and vertically for easy double sided printing.
I have printed my set onto (8.5 X 11) sheets of card stock, but I have also printed them onto paper and laminated them. I generally print enough sets for my students to play in groups of 3 or 4.
Have Fun! Joseph Huston
