Learning about the 50 States: FREE Printables + Resources for State Studies
This year, we are doing Classical Conversations Cycle 3, and we are focusing on learning the states for geography. (I’m even working on being able to draw the state map from memory–we’ll see how that goes!) I’ve had a great time compiling and putting together resources to help us learn about the states and capitals.
Below I’ve listed some of my favorite resources for learning about the 50 states!
First off, I think Globalmania is an excellent free resource to get you started on your geography exploration! It is about world geography, but it has tons of helpful tips!
Also, Sola Gratia Mom has put together a great tutorial on how to teach your kids how to draw the US (helpful for moms, too)!

Other Stuff We Are Using!!
I bought The Scrambled States of America game for the girls. A small version of the book is included, but a full-size version of The Scrambled States of America is more helpful! We were also given several of the Which Way USA club books and maps by a friend. We’ll be using those, too!
By the way, if all of these resources I’ve shared here overwhelm you, be sure to check out how Homegrown Learners is keeping a simplified approach to learning about the states.
I have to end with this just because it is awesome (and it would be fun to have)! Might as well take advantage of bath time–and learn states (and world geography) with this world shower curtain, right?!!

We were learning about the world with ocean and continents worksheets but now it’s time to explore things a bit more.
We think geography is one of the most important subjects to learn and all kids should have an idea about the world around them (focus naturally being on the country they live in).

Get Free Printable States and Capitals Worksheets
We’ve made a few different worksheets with different approaches to learning – as kids learn differently. We tried to make the worksheets as engaging and diverse as possible.
To help students familiarise themselves with all the names we made a few word search puzzles. This is a great way to memorise the names of the states and capitals. There are a few different versions available so kids can solve them more than one time.
Coloring isn’t just for fun, it can be super helpful with learning too. Make learning the locations a bit more fun, rather than just writing down the names on the map have kids color the USA map as instructed.
There is also a selection of basic worksheets where kids have the complete list of states and have to write down the capitals and vice versa. I’ve made two versions of this one – one with “cheat sheet” and one without.
You can also grab the blank USA maps which will work great with these worksheets (you can use them to have the kids locate the states and capitals and write down the names).
