The States & Capitals Songs Kit includes a sound track with 9 songs and 4 test songs and a large 25x 36 map of the USA with 172 items to label. Students can color the map while they listen to the songs. The lyrics of the songs are on the map. One side of the tape teaches the states and the other side teaches the capitals. Students point to the states on the map while they sing. Each state is geographically connected to the next state.
The USA is divided into 5 sections: the northern border, the southern border, the eastern border, the middle and the Pacific states. Each of those sections is a song. After students learn the southern border, from California to Florida, they learn the capitals in the same order. During the test on the tape, they have to remember the name of the state and the capital that comes next as they go from west to east.
