These 50 states flashcards are perfect for printing out and having the kids use them for practice as they are learning the map of the United States.
When it comes to learning the states around the map, my son had no interest in learning it. It was extremely hard for him to catch on so it became difficult for both of us.
That is why we started using flashcards.
He learns so much better with flashcards. It’s almost like it becomes more of a game to him. But as long as he is learning, it’s ok with me.
So to help him memorize the 50 states, these simple flashcards are what we came up with.
Now we have fun with the flashcards and create little competitions with them to make them even more fun. He also gets to pick a fun prize when it has all 50 down pat.
Each flashcard has a picture of the state as well as the name of the state. There are a total of 4 cards on each page. One page has only 2 cards that way they are small enough for little hands. It also helps to save some ink.
Since the flashcards worked well for us, I wanted to share it with you. Maybe it will help your child memorize the states.
You can grab the free printable here. I’ve included it in the free resource library where you can get other educational and helpful printables for free.
I also came across this interesting video that explains a way for kids to learn the 50 states quickly. It’s an interesting way to learn the states and my daughter was able to catch on really quickly.
I feel like we did something similar to this when I was growing up. There was a song we had to learn called the “50 States” song. Once we learned it, we then had a concert and had to sing it during a concert.
I still find myself singing the song as I’m trying to remember the states!
