50 State Capitals in 50 Fun Minutes!

Have you tried helping your kids learn their state capitals and they just haven't got it yet? We have found a fun way to help your kids learn their state capitals. It sure is a lot to learn but these flash cards make it fun and educational all at the same time. My friend used the 50 State Capitals in 50 Fun Minutes flash cards with her 7 year old daughter and she seemed to really take to them. She is already getting some of these memorized! I thought that was great!

They also claim that it will take half the time to learn the capitals using this fun form of learning versus the traditional repetitive memorization.

"Shift learning into high gear with dynamic visuals combined with phonetics, rhymes, humor and association."

Here is an example of a couple of the cards:
Teachers, parents and home schooling families are all taking advantage of these cards. In the set you get 50 flash cards along with a CD Rom which includes 52 printable pages of the following:
  • Quick start suggestions
  • Teacher/or self-study guide
  • Map of USA
  • Regional maps
  • Crossword puzzles
  • Reviews and exams

  10. I have four boys, the older two know their state capitals, but the younger two would love these. Maybe they could help their dad who can only remember the state capital he grew up in...
