kids geographyHere are our 2 US geography worksheets. There are no images for them, so just click on the link to be taken to the PDF file.

The “I know my states” worksheet features an outline of the map of the USA and ask students to color the map (find a different color for each state). It is meant for elementary school students and is a great way to assess they US geography knowledge.

The “Identifying states – Northern US” worksheet can be used for both elementary and early middle school students. It features the map of the Northern US from West Coast to the Great Lakes. It omits the Eastern portion of the US (don’t ask how that happened, but we are keeping this one like that)

1. USA wall map. This map is sold on Amazon for around $10 and the shipping was free when I last checked, so it’s a pretty good deal.
