We are not actually studying United States geography this year. We are doing a world geography through My Father's World. But our "trip" around the world begins in the U. S. And our USA activity today was so cute, I had to share!
It was actually a challenge: Choose 4 colored pencils. Color every state on a state map without having any bordering states with the same color. Hint: start with the 4 corner states of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah.
The kids (and their Daddy) did this while I read to them. It really works! And it was fun to see them use some strategy and planning skills.
Grab a blank USA map and give it a try!
