FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON - “Free Southwest States Review Boom Cards (With Audio Options)”

by Laura Candler
4th - 6th Grade

Southwest States Review Boom Cards offer a fun way for students to review the names, locations, capitals, and abbreviations of the four states of the American Southwest: Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma.

These self-checking Boom Cards are highly engaging for students because they use a variety of answer choice styles including multiple choice, fill in the blank, and drag and drop. Students are not expected to spell the state names or their capitals. However, they will be required to enter the 2-letter abbreviations for some of the states. These Boom Cards are perfect for both classroom use and distance learning!

Southwest States Review is a free sample from my 50 States Boom Cards Bundle. The other products in the bundle are the Midwest States Review, Southeast States Review, Northeast States Review, and Western States Review. The Southwest Region has only 4 states, so there are only 14 digital task cards in this set. However, the other 4 regional sets have 11 or 12 states, so those products have 35 or 38 Boom Cards respectively. If you like this free sample, you can find the entire 50 States Boom Cards bundle in my TpT store.

Audio Read-aloud Option

There are two versions of the Southwest States Review Boom Cards included in this product, one with audio and one without audio. The two decks are similar, but the cards in the audio deck have a sound icon in the upper left corner that students can click if they want to hear the words on the card read aloud.
