Let your kiddos take turns directing each other around the country by using the directions on the compass. They’ll have an awesome time walking their fingers across this 3-foot map from east from west in search of the correct state — but be sure to watch out for the oceans!

3. Capitol Guessing Game

Remembering capitals can be tricky, but the easy-to-peel states with state capitals hidden underneath offer up a great way to ditch the flashcards and take the learning to the walls!

4. Where I’ve Been

Kids love this game! Use the state names to label the states where all of the students in your class have been. Have they collectively visited all 50?

These sets are multi-useful. One homeschooler on the road stuck the map to the wall in her RV. “I bought this to use in our RV when we take our trip around the US. I just put it in the RV today and it was perfect! Very durable and well made. Almost like a clothe material. I placed and replaced the stickers a couple of times and they seem like they will last a long time. I’m very excited about this product!” -Kylie K.
