Product Description
This versatile set of cards for state names, state maps, abbreviations, capital cities, regions of the country, and geographical features will help your students gain control over so much information about all 50 states, and the connections will make all the facts easier to recall!

This resource contains four sets of 50 state riddle cards, with a card for each state, printed four cards per page:

* Set 1: Three-clue riddles, with the state capital included as one of the clues. Other clues include a variety of location (“north of…”, “between and …”), state nicknames, and references to geographic features like specific oceans, lakes, and rivers. Every card in Set 1 also has an outline map of the state.

* Set 2: The same riddles as in Set 1, without the outline maps. Instead, this set has blanks to represent the name of the state, like _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ for North Dakota.

* Set 3: The same clues as in the previous sets, with answers provided in multiple
choice format for extra support.

* Set 4: The same clues, with no additional visual support

Also included are three sets of 50 matching cards, with cards for all of the states, printed ten cards per page:

* Set 1: State abbreviations
* Set 2: State capitals
* Set 3: Unlabeled state outline maps

Recording pages and answer keys to go with the riddle cards are included in this download, along with two US maps to use as alternate recording pages. There's also
a map for additional support with the abbreviations.

Download the preview to find a list of eight great activities to use with these cards!
