USA Word Search



50 word searches shaped like the map of each state!! Learning about the USA is a game for kids with these entertaining puzzles. They introduce each state from Alabama to Wyoming, and the word list includes all things state-related. Plus there are 20 factoids about each state, including the capital, the biggest city, nicknames and mottos; state birds, flowers, and trees; famous natives, and other great stuff. For Alaska, keen-eyed youngsters will have to find McKinley (the highest point); Iditarod, for the dogsled race that takes place there; and Glaciers. Sunny Florida challenges young solvers to uncover the Everglades, Daytona Raceway, Kennedy Space Center, and Walt Disney World. Illinois is the Land of Lincoln, the Chicago Bulls, and the birthplace of jazz great Miles Davis. The facts are fantastic, child-friendly, and easy to remember. (It will probably even help them remember their geography lessons! But shhh—keep it a secret and the kids will never know.)These puzzles are the best trip across the US a kid can take…without a car!
