Do you have some students who and could benefit from practicing with a set of 50 states flashcards and could also use some additional practice with their latitude and longitude skills? Both of these are skills essential to the study of geography, so why not have a little fun practicing?
50 States Flashcards
When I have students that aren't very familiar with the location of the 50 states I have them make a set of flash cards to take with them and practice. Students place dot on a state and on the back write the name of the state and the capital. You can also give them a completed set that they just have to cut out and get right to practicing!
Provided in this Product:
One COMPLETED set of 50 states flashcards (10 per page - must be printed back-to-back)
One sheet of 10 blank United States political maps that can be printed and 5 sheets given to each student.
One sheet of 4 blank United States political maps larger in size for younger students or students who do better with larger material.
One sheet of 2 blank United States political maps that could be laminated and used as a classroom set.
USA Latitude and Longitude Puzzle
This puzzle is a set of 85 coordinates that will eventually form the shape of the United States of America. This is a great challenge for students who already know latitude and longitude because it forces them to approximate in between the lines. For younger students who are just learning latitude and longitude this might be a bit too challenging, but one they can work their way up to!

Page 2: List of Coordinates to Plot

Page 4: Answer Key
I have used this formative assessment with students for years and have found that when they know that the coordinates will eventually make a shape it helps them to see if they are using the right directions. Students will plot the coordinates one at a time, label them in numerical order, and finally connect the dots to hopefully see the outline of the USA. It has worked great for my students so I hope yours find the same success.
