We are super excited about the Summer Olympics this year even if they aren’t in the United States! This is also a great opportunity for young kids to learn more about the United States of America in preparation for the Summer Olympic Games  {or for any Olympic games held in the future}. I created an United States Geography Scavenger Hunt. This will be fun for us to work on together as we learn how to look at the map of the United States, use an atlas, and research the different states!

UNITED STATES GEOGRAPHY SCAVENGER HUNT

U.S.A GEOGRAPHYSCAVENGER HUNT for kids

This is a terrific geography activity even when there are no Olympic Games!

There are a few different resources you can use to help you on your geography scavenger hunt! This is a great opportunity to get a large map of the United States to put on the wall. My son has really been asking for one! Also we are picking up a Kid’s United States atlas {and a world one too!}. Alternatively, I found this free US map printable that you can either print out or put up on a screen to use. It is on the small side but you can zoom around on the tablet or phone. Parents can help kids with researching the different states and finding information to complete the geography scavenger hunt below!

Here are a few of our kids geography books as well as a great map of the United States we love!
