Objectives

  • Students will review U.S. geography as they create a jigsaw puzzle from a map of the United States.
  • Students will become more familiar with the locations, names, and capitals of the fifty states.

Materials

Procedures

  1. Hand out a map, scissors, and small plastic bag to each student.
  2. Explain to students that they will be creating a jigsaw puzzle by cutting out each state from the map.
  3. Instruct students to use colored pencils or crayons to color regions of the map and/or label states and capitals before cutting the map. Students may use a classroom map or other reference materials to help them fill-in the map. (This will make the puzzle more useful as a study tool.)
  4. Once the map is labeled, have each student use scissors to cut out each state. These will become the puzzle pieces.
  5. Store the pieces in a plastic bag.
