Can you name all 50 states AND their capitals? I know I’ve got the states down, but man I think it’d be pretty difficult for me to name all of the capitals. Maybe it’s something I should’ve practiced more as a kid! So, I love that I can help my kids learn all 50 states and their capitals with these printable states and capitals worksheets!

These fun United States geography worksheets aren’t really work at all! Your kids will get to name the state capital, write the postal abbreviations for the name of the state, and then color 5 different pictures and name them. A great way to learn about the differences and unique qualities between all of the 50 great states of the U.S.A!

I love giving my kids educational worksheets that don’t even seem like they’re work. It seems like the 4th grade or 5th grade is a popular age to teach about the United States geography.

Things like these USA states and capitals worksheets, snowman multiplication facts worksheets, and fall alphabet worksheets making learning exciting and fun. It’s a great way to keep them busy while teaching them things they need to know, or just giving them a bit of extra practice on certain topics.
