Buy a poster map of the United States that shows each state in contrasting colors (available at teaching supply stores). Place it in a central part of the house, such as the kitchen. Then choose a state each week, show it to your child on the map and tell them about that part of the country. This will be a great learning tool for the whole family (Mom and Dad too). As your child gets older, replace this map with a world map.
