US States and Capitals 2 – Puzzle

US States and Capitals 2 – Puzzle

US States and Capitals 2 – Puzzle There are 21 US states and their capitals in the puzzle. New York with Albany is in both puzzles: US States and Capitals 1 - Puzzle US States and Capitals 2 - Puzzle I’ve included three different sizes of the same puzzle. The smaller size is only three pages and it is great if you are going to print of individual copies for students to practice with in class or at home. The larger size requires 6 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve – fun for centers and group work. The extra-large size requires 18 pieces of paper. Cut out the puzzle pieces (or even better if your students do it themselves) and students are to solve the puzzle so that it matches the solution provided. I’ve been using these puzzles for years with great success! I recommend printing the puzzles on colourful paper and laminating them. This way you only have to cut them out once and they will last for years! What is included in this product? • The solution to the puzzle – Pages 3 • The normal size puzzle – Pages 4 – 6 • The large size puzzle – Pages 7 – 12 • The extra-large size puzzle – Pages 13-30 • Questions and Answers in a table format for easy grading or you can cut these out to play a matching game – Pages 31 – 33 My students love doing these types of puzzles. This product can also be used as a perfect revision of the school work to do at home. All answers can be easily checked thanks to the included solution to the puzzle or questions and answers shown in a table. Thank you for checking my resources.
