- How you play the game is up to you but I suggest providing students with one to two clues a day, from the first set. On their folder “gameboard” they will write the clue number in the corresponding state, as well as the states’ name and abbreviation. They will also record this information on the states table on the left side of the folder. You make this a game by rewarding points to students who have placed the states correctly. This is meant to be an introduction to learning the location of the fifty states. It requires students to follow directions carefully and use a compass rose to go in the correct direction. Round 2 cards will focus on adding capitals to their maps.
- Every couple of weeks I quiz the students on the states we have visited, meaning the quizzes are cumulative. They are allowed to take their game folders home that week to help them study.
