With the demands of reading, writing and mathematics at this age, parents often have no time to work with their children in the realm of social studies. This game requires almost no preparation, lasts for years and can be modified a thousand times to help your child with identifying states, rivers, mountain, capitals, directions, borders, and cities.
Put the name of each state on a popsicle stick. Put the sticks in a sock. As you are making dinner or reading the newspaper, have your child take five sticks out of the sock. Find those states on the map and circle them. It's that easy and you can just imagine the modifications you can make.
