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.

Homeschool Specialists' Review▼▲
Using music as a tool to memory learning is both easy and fun. Somehow putting information to quirky tunes really helps with recall. I used Grammar Songs with my kids to study parts of speech and punctuation rules. There are activities and exercises throughout the book to reinforce the concepts in each song.
From this same series, we used Geography Songs for continents, oceans, and countries, as well as the solar system. We had a blast learning about Africa, the most challenging continent, with 57 countries in one song! States and Capitals Songs covered all 50 states and their capitals.
The songs themselves won't win any music awards, but when information is put to music, the process of memorization becomes much easier. Vast amounts of knowledge can be accessed by recalling the tune to a song. My children still remember some of the songs we learned, and they are adults now!
Tip: We used the CD's in the car to make better use of our driving time.
Kit includes audio CD with 16 songs, 68-page student workbook featuring song lyrics and written exercises, teacher's guide with activity suggestions, and answer key.
