I couldn’t place Boston on a map before living in the US, and not even pronuncing Massachusetts with an accent okay enough to be understood. I bought a big map, which is still in my main room, in my flat and once in a while I’m learning some States and their capitals. It was useful to play Trivia during the Christmas holiday since I had a question about the capital of Vermont, which I knew – and everybody was surprised. Me the first. Here are the tools that I used to learn these states.
On the website “Your kids learn” -that should be renamed to “… and foreigners as well”, I’ve learnt to place the States – with and without the lines of the borders. Woot Woot! Tricky! Try this puzzle yourself:
The hard points
- Midwest states: they all look the same.
- A common mistake for beginners: place Washington state on the East Coast.
- The small states of the East Coast can be tricky… but I live in Boston, so that’s my jam!
I maps are your jam:
