STATES AND CAPITALS STUDY GUIDE AND WORKSHEETS

 

Salam Academys

States and Capitals Contest will take place on:

 

FRIDAY

November 06, 2015

 

This contest is open to 3rd-8th grade students.

 

This is an elimination style contest much like the spelling bee:

 

Round 1

Judge says the name of the state and student has to say the capitol

 

Round 2

If all states and capitols are done and students are still competing, then the judge asks the state abbreviations.

 

Round 3

If all abbreviations are exhausted then the judge asks the year of statehood.

 

Round 4

If all years of statehood are exhausted then the judge asks the State Motto


If all students are not eliminated at this point, students will be asked state flowers, state birds, state animal.

 

This study guide contains all the information they need except the state flowers, birds and animals.

 

In addition to studying this study guide:

 

-Review the packet you completed and correct your mistakes

 

-Play games online, just do a Google Search for “States and Capitals Games”

 

-Make and study flash cards from the email I sent to you and your parents on December

 

-Study over Winter Break to make sure you are ready for the Competition!

 

Good Luck! You got this.
