In Cycle 3 of Classical Conversation, the US states and capitals are learned and memorized. Since this is something that requires practice, we are always looking for fun ways to work on our states and capitals. Though we enjoy our Animaniacs song (see previous post), I have been looking for a fun game to play also.
This week, my favorite extra curriculum website, CurrClick, has a seller, Student Handouts, with a fun states and capitals trivia game available. And this week it is FREE!!! So we are going to try it. It seems that most of the games I have found are geared toward older kids so this might be a little better for our reviewing use. I’m excited to try it.
As you can see by the picture, we do a lot of our review at breakfast. This might give us a chance to try a different way.
Do you have fun ways that you review the states and capitals? I would love to hear them.

I remember learning capitals of the world with my aunt. She had travelled loads and told us stories about each capital she had been to. I am 46 now and a good person to have on a quiz team, because I still remember all my capitals!
Thanks for stopped by my blog. I don’t really remember my states and capitals so the way your aunt taught you obviously had an impact. Isn’t that remarkable? I think mine was 4th grade regurgitation for the test and then it was gone – mind dump. I’m hoping that doing it in a fun and passive way through Classical Conversations and through our reviews at home will make it more fun and memorable so she would do well on a quiz team when she’s in her 40s, unlike her mama! Thanks for sharing.
