The 50 states of the United States are all different to one another, and there is a lot to learn about each of them. You can help students enjoy learning about the 50 states with these games and activities.

50 States Games and Activities

The United States is a pretty huge place. Each of the 50 states has its own history, culture, eccentricities, and traditions. Learning about these variations from state to state means absorbing a large amount of information. It's, therefore, incumbent on us as teachers to make the process as fun and engaging as possible. Check out a few of these ideas for games and activities which will make learning about the 50 states more interesting and enjoyable.

Picture Books

For this activity, have each student create a 50-page picture book with images that represent the 50 states. This can be one single image per page with the name of the state underneath. Alternatively, you could have students use lots of small images. Either way, give each student a small, 50-page scrapbook and have them find and print out distinctive pictures for each of the states. For example, North Dakota might be represented with a picture of the Great Plains. California might be represented with a picture of the Pacific Coast.
