States & Capitals Songs includes 10 songs and 4 test songs which teach children the states by region: the northern border, the southern border, the eastern border, the middle and the Pacific states. After students learn the states, they learn the capitals in the same order; during the test, they have to remember both the name of the state and the capital as they move from west to east. Songs are different, and repeated with a pause before the answers are provided, allowing students to self-test their knowledge. This map is numbered in the same order that the locations are sung in the songs, making it easy to locate the locations while you are singing. Students can color the map while they listen to the songs. The lyrics of the songs are on the map, making it easy for students to point to locations while they sing.
