You need to collect Crystal Light canisters and Popsicle sticks. Wal-Mart sells a giant box of sticks for cheap. I had a few of my early finishers write a state on one side of the stick and the capital on the other using a fine permanent marker. I then taped the label on the canister and covered with packing tape.
To play the game the child or children dump out the sticks and take turns naming the state or capital. If they get it right they keep the stick. They can only pull from the top. The children take these home one night a week in the Homework Bag (see earlier post). They also can play them during the day.
Here is the document...sorry about the first one. I need to upgrade my PDF program. There are still five on the sheet. Click the picture below to print the document.
Do you have any ideas for learning states and capitals?
I would love to hear from you!
