Name & place all 50 States?

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

Not exactly a game but I guess it depends on your attitude (lol). I consider myself fairly intelligent (average any way) but guess I do not pass 3rd grade. Had no idea I had forgot so much!

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

So glad I won't be alone on the bus. lol. Those little states really set me back too.

Lincoln Park, MI(Zone 5a)

I can't wait till my friend brings her grandkids over tonight....Ones 9 the other is 12...I'll let you know how they scored!!!I did mine again still can't get passed 6th grade....LOL...Betcha the school bus is gonna be crowed!!!

SF Bay Area, CA(Zone 9b)

I found the problem. If you don't put the end of the red arrow directly on the state you will get X'd out. It happened to me a couple of times even though I knew I had the correct state. I was so bad at aiming the arrow the first time I did it that I didn't get past the 3rd grade!

Decatur, GA(Zone 7a)

How many do you have to pass before you pass 3rd grade? I got 40/48, but I also got 3 X's for fumbling around with the names before I even got to the map. I also put 2 in the wrong place, but then corrected them.

The funny thing is that I TAUGHT 3rd grade many years ago. lol

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

I'll admit I'm still working on it myself. I refuse to look at a map LOL. You have to get all of them to "pass".

Lincoln Park, MI(Zone 5a)

Start up a WA...that might help...

Coast range of, OR(Zone 8b)

It took me two tries but I got them all. Gotta test my husband!

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

good job!

Lincoln Park, MI(Zone 5a)

I never did get them all...Still trying tho!!!

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

I kinda gave up there for a while but I'll give it another shot.

Lincoln Park, MI(Zone 5a)

LOL...I give up!!!

Noblesville, IN(Zone 5a)

I don't do well under timed test. Yes, that is it.

Tyrone, GA(Zone 7b)

I didn't even realize it was timed --and I was just taking my time, la-di-da. I knew this would be humbling. I failed the eyesite test LOL

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

It's just toooooo much pressure, aaaaaaahhhh,

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

Okay I went and got a map. Had to do it for my own sanity. Got'em all, but not too sure I can do it without the map! My brain just don't remember like it used too. LOL

Belfield, ND(Zone 4a)

I get messed up in the Northeast with all those little states.

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

Yep Joan, those were my main problem too.

Northumberland, United Kingdom(Zone 9a)

44/48 on first try . . . messed up a bit in the midwest, and didn't realise it was timed until the bar was half-way along. Passed second time, but it's a rush!

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

Good job Resin! Put me to shame lol

Southern, CT(Zone 6a)

Wow Resin! 44 is great for someone from the UK.
I got all 48 on my first try!

Westchester, IL(Zone 5b)

Amazingly, I did okay with the Northeast. I have a problem with the big box states in the West... they all look the same! "Okay, now what state is this rectangle?!

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

It's kinda funny how we all see things depending on our location!

Yonkers, NY(Zone 5b)

My 5th grade teacher told me to remember that Vermont is shaped like a "V"
So I would know which one was Vermont - but couldn't remember if it was to the right or left of New Hampshire. I got around that by remembering that they were NOT in alphabetical order.

That's how I learned the order of Illinois & Indiana - only in this case they ARE in order.

How do I remember which is & which isn't?
Well.... I figure the V for Vermont is a nifty way to tell which one is Vermont, so the alphabet thing ISN'T needed.

LOL!
I know... I'm strange.

Nancy

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

Hi Nancy, Finding ways to recall is always good (not strange at all!) I had never thought of the V shape so it is very helpful to me. Heaven knows the older I get the more little "tricks" I need to remember stuff. thank you for sharing :)

Hulbert, OK(Zone 7a)

Oh, my gosh, that was fun!

But I'm not going to graduate any time soon if
we rely on that test. LOL

Otsego, MI(Zone 5b)

Took me 3 times....that was fun.

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

glad you had fun mmock, after cheating I was able to go back
WITHOUT the map and did retain it...there is hope for me yet!

Otsego, MI(Zone 5b)

I didn't realize it was timed the first time I did it. Then when I was almost thru the 2nd time I realized that if I held down the mouse button and moved the state name it was a lot quicker and smoother. When I was a kid my mother made my brother and I write down all the states, then we had to learn all the capitals. This was always done during a thunderstorm, she was so afraid of them. We had to sit on the couch during every one. After I grew up I have lived in several different states and that has helped me know what was around what.

Otsego, MI(Zone 5b)

oh Merigold, I lived in Iowa for 33 years, Des Moines and Humboldt.

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

Been here in Iowa about 20 years myself..originally a South Dakota girl. But we like it here and maybe I'll catch up to your 33 years!

Hulbert, OK(Zone 7a)

Isn't it funny how some of us retain the things we learned in school
and others (like myself) couldn't point out Vermont unless we were
given three guesses. Or four. LOL.

The states I've lived in or visited, no problem. Those with distinct
shapes or locations, dandy. But there are some areas I have zip
for knowledge of, and thus don't retain the information. Too much
gardening on the brain.

Fun trying, though. :-)

Sioux City, IA(Zone 4b)

I think I need to do more traveling!!!
