USA Geography

Learning USA geography can be tough, but a little trick to help memorize those pesky little details that no matter how hard you try, just slip out of your brain...is to group like things together and put it in a melody or sing it.

Let's try it with the Original Thirteen Colonies.


(Say the first three quick)

New York
New Jersey
New Hampshire

(Now the next two with a sing song voice slowly)

Connecticut
Rhode Island

(Say with a straight voice)

Virginia
And both the Carolinas

(Sing-song again)

Massachusetts
 and
Maryland

(NOW real quick the last three)

Pennsylvania

Georgia
Delaware



Next let's explore a few more of the East Coast States and continue our studies of USA Geograpy.

Pledge of Allegiance

I pledge allegiance
to the flag
of the
United States of America
and to the
Republic
for which it stands,
one nation,
under God,
indivisible,
with liberty
and justice
for all.



































The Star Spangled Banner
by
Francis Scott Key


Oh, say can you see
By the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed
at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes
and bright stars,
Through the perilous fight.
O'er the ramparts we watched
Were so gallantly streaming
And the rockets' red glare
The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there
O, say, does that
Star-Spangled Banner
yet wave
O'ver the land of the free
And the home of the brave?
