This is a musical way to help students learn their states and capitals and where they are located. Until I created these songs, I could get my students to connect the correct capital to the state, but I was having great difficulty helping them remember where the states were located. In desperation, I created these four songs that teach the states and capitals geographically. That is, each state/capital borders on the state/capital mentioned just previously in the song.
And...it worked! My students knew the state, capital and where it was geographically. The teaching tips and tricks in this product will give you step by step instructions on how to teach it, as well as the resources I used in my class.
This product includes a 22 page pdf file full of teaching suggestions, maps, worksheets, quizzes, test and keys. It also includes 8 wma audio files. The audio files are recordings of the four songs - two recordings of each song, each at a different tempo.
These maps can also be projected on an interactive whiteboard for further student participation.
I hope this works for you as well as did for me and my students!
