Yes, I know there are only 48 states on this map. How many can you name?

Extra credit: List the state capitols!

    I can do 47 without pause, but always have trouble with Delaware. Noted Alaska and Hawaii were not on the picture… Probably only have 25 capitals, since I haven’t practiced in a while.

      I might have trouble with those itty bitty states. If I back into it going with the ones I’m certain about I think 46 at least. When I was about my granddaughter’s age an old black man who worked for my father taught me all the states and capitals. I made a hundred on the test. He made sure of it and expected it.

      I’m ashamed now to think I don’t remember all that he taught me, as he remembered it when he was old. He would be disappointed in me and I’m awful sorry about that.

      I never cared as much for my parents’ opinion.

        Back in the 50’s, we used to put the states into a template/puzzle at my grandmother’s house. I can NAME the 50 states but not necessarily put all the names into the correct blanks (northeast of the Mississippi I’m stymied).
        Looking online, there is a colorful placemat with the states & capitols on one side and a blank map on the reverse with the capitols listed at the sides. Very cool learning tool for bright kids.
        Good exercise!

          After looking at the map, I decided I would have gotten them all because I know where Maryland is (Chesapeake Bay), so I’d have figured out Delaware. The only other difficulty is that I have to think about which state is Vermont and which is New Hampshire. Don’t hit me G&C.

          I’m going to look at the placemats, thank you. I have eight grandchildren I like to help along with fun learning stuff.

          • Never hit you Menagerie! even tho you are a bad doggie for smoking! 😉

            New Hampshire is right, sadly Vermont has gone way left from the days of “White Christmas” when they joked about no democrats in Vermont. “How to Marry a Millionaire” joked about no democrats in Maine.

            I got all 50. The only 2 that are tough for me are Colorado & Wyoming. Wyoming is a tiny bit more square. 🙂
            Here is a fun way of learning where they all go. http://www.jigzone.com/puzzles/77055D51C8B3?z=20 It’s a puzzle for the 48 mainland states you can make for any of the photos available. Here is an example:

            • How strange this took so long to show up. My computer has been having the hiccups I think! (It’s not like I wiped it down with Everclear 😉 )

              Oh well, these puzzles are where I get Wyoming and Colorado confused because they’re similar shape and also not in the right place!

          • Okay, I did not do what I just suggested to USMom to do, and I “lost” my response to you.

            I would never hit you Menagerie! 😉 But I hope you’re not a bad doggie and that’s a cigarette chew toy you got there cause too much doggie coughing = throw-up! (Flashing back to dog puke right on Mom’s favorite blue rug!)

            New Hampshire is on the right, sadly Vermont has gone too far left!

            I got all 50. The most trouble for me is Wyoming and Colorado which have almost the exact same shape.

    All 50. No problem. Now the capitols, not so much.

    Bonus question from an old episode of Jeopardy! (the Final Jeopardy! answer):
    One of the four State capitols that begin with the same letter as the State.

    *hums the 30-second theme song*

    I’ll check back in a bit and see if anyone gets it. No cheating by looking on a map, you know Alex Trebek would not approve!

    No way! Does it count that at one time I could name both the state locations and capitals? LOL! Hey, I’m lucky I can wake up in the morning knowing where my own state is.

    As for our capital, it’s a bastion of leftism and not worth remembering even though it is beautiful. VERY LUCKILY SO FAR we are a solid Republican state even though the left is trying to AZ (Arizona) us.

    I could do 98% of the states, maybe all 48, but the Capitals would be a small problem as I’ve forgotten a lot!

  5. OK, I’m way too tired.
    Here is a link to a puzzle website where you can make the pieces for any puzzle photo be the 48 contiguous states: http://www.jigzone.com/puzzles/77055D51C8B3?z=20
    have fun! 😉

    I was able to find Puerto Rico, but the others have me stumped.
