Overview - UNITED STATES GAME
United States Game engages students with interactive social studies and geography tools which combine learning state facts with knowing the location of all 50 states. By PCI's Janie Haugen-McLane, the large game board features a full-color U.S. map and adaptive teaching approach.
The state facts listed below are taught one at a time in nine different games, allowing students with learning differences to focus and be successful in learning each set of facts. Also, students receive easy-to-use study guides before playing each of the games.

Students place their game pieces on their home state, roll the die, and move that many spaces (states) in any direction on the U.S. map. After landing on a state, a player identifies the state''s name. If the state is identified correctly, the player shades in that state on his or her U.S. map score sheet.
