A Lively Way to Learn the Names and Locations of the Fifty States

This outline map includes a clue to each state’s name: the first letter. The most fun way to use the map is to project it onto a whiteboard. Divide students onto two teams. Give each team one marker of a color different from the other team’s marker. One player from each team may come to the board and write as many state’s names as they can. The state does not “belong” to a team until they have spelled the name correctly. The game can become noisy because students can coach from their seats. But remember: only two people should be at the board at any time.
