This colorful, two-sided, laminated placemat shows the flags of the 50 States of the United States of America. Under each flag is listed the capital, state flower, bird, tree,song, motto and nickname. The reverse side is black and white and can be used with damp erase markers.
Toss a coin or marker onto the placemat. Read the name of the state and ask the next player to name the state capital or bird, flower, etc. If the player is successful, he scores a point. If not, read the answer aloud for everyone to hear and let the next player toss the token. Once players know a lot about each state,
give a point for every bit of information she can recall for the state in play.
