Category Description for States and Capitals (Memoria Press):

This is one of the most straight-forward programs for covering this material thoroughly that I've seen. Using the book Don't Know Much About the 50 States as a reference, the Student Guide provides a consumable workbook for basic information on the regions of the United States and then state-by-state (postal abbreviation, capital, nickname, and fun facts). There's also a solid geographical component as the student marks famous cities and landmarks on each state's map, as well as landform lessons. (You'll need a good set of colored pencils for these activities.) Memorization of the states/capitals/abbreviation is practiced and recited. Regional reviews are provided periodically, as well as regional quizzes and a final test. The Teacher Guide provides some general teaching guidelines, student pages with answers, and the quizzes and final test (copies with and without answers). Lesson Plans, which are not included in the package, provide teaching guidelines plus a set of brief weekly checklists for 30 weeks' of lessons. This course does not include any Christian content. 84 pgs, student; 117 pgs, teacher; both pb. ~ Janice

My kids love to learn about states and capitals and I was hoping that this would help solidify what they are learning by having a record of it to refer to that they did themselves.

Are the additional lessons plans necessary? How much of the child's learning comes from the lesson plans, as opposed to just using the workbook and the Don't Know Much about the 50 States book?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Personally, I do not think the additional lesson plans are necessary. My daughter was able to learn so much just by using the workbook and the Don’t Know My goal for her was to just learn the capitals of each state, where the states are located, and maybe something interesting about each state (although this wasn’t required - it was more like a nice to know kinda thing). We were definitely able to accomplish this using the two books mentioned above.

Just what I was looking for
This set has been useful as a framework for basic U.S. Geography, teaching states and capitols, along with regions of the U.S. For more details, keep reading!

I am doing U.S. Geography with my 3 older children this year, ages 13, 11, and 9. The student guide is perfect for what we're doing. (I bought a copy for each kid.) Each page has a blank map of the state with space to write in Fun Facts, Postal Code, and some other things. It's straightforward and simple.
We do one state per session, twice a week. In addition to the "Don't Know Much About the 50 States" book, I have 3 other state books/atlases to look in for information. Everyone gets a book, and we fill in the maps with major cities, geographical features, and places of personal interest. I assigned them to write at least 3 fun facts per state, as well. Lots of fun discussion, as each book has a little bit different information.

I have been using the Teacher Guide as my book and fill it in along with them! It includes the blank maps, and space to write--it just has some of the facts already filled in. There are also quizzes and answer keys in the Teacher Guide. (I found a separate workbook for my 4 year old that's more of a coloring book with one page per state.)
We have also used the cookbook a couple of times now. Arranged alphabetically by state, with fun facts about the state as well. The recipes seem to be based on what crops or products the state is famous for, more so than a particularly well-known dish from that state. For example, it mentions California is the leading producer of broccoli and lemons, so the recipes that we made were Cream of Broccoli Soup and a lemon dessert. The recipes we've tried have been tasty--my 11-year-old daughter made one by herself without any trouble.
We haven't used the flashcards yet, but plan to do so to review as we get further along.
I am pleased with this purchase. It has given us what we need to fill in as we go, along with a some fun extras.
