Test your geography knowledge - USA states | Lizard Point Small, hard to click regions are enhanced with a red circle, as shown below: United States BINGO Game Just last week my son said to me, “Mom, I know all the news.” Before I could ask him what he was talking about, he rattled off, “New Hamster, New York, New Jersey, and New Mexico.” These kind of unsolicited comments make me smile. Why? 1) Because of his mispronunciation of New Hampshire. 2) Because he’s obviously interested in (and learning about) the states of our great country. It’s been awhile since we pulled out our Scrambled States Memory Game and although I love it, I wanted to do something new with the states shapes I’d made. Before we got to playing, though, we read Loreen Leedy’s book, Celebrate the 50 States! I let my son pick his BINGO card and cover the FREE space in the center. Until my son learns the states better, I’ll show him the call cards so he can see the color and shape of the state.

United States PEOPLE & CULTURE Throughout its history, the United States has been a nation of immigrants. The population is diverse with people from all over the world seeking refuge and a better way of life. The country is divided into six regions: New England; the mid-Atlantic; the South; the Midwest; the Southwest, and the West. European settlers came to New England in search of religious freedom. The mid-Atlantic region includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and the city of Washington, D.C. The South includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia, all of which struggled after the Civil War, which lasted from 1860-1865. The Midwest is home to the country's agricultural base and is called the "nation's breadbasket." The Southwest is a beautiful stark landscape of prairie and desert.
