One of my favorite things to study in upper elementary school was the state capitals. As a child who both loved geography and remembering facts, state capitals seemed to be the perfect combination of the two. Even after I memorized them all, I still wanted to buy flash cards with the states and capitals, just to review, instead of a toy during one trip to the mall.
Sadly, I didn’t realize I had forgotten so many of those once beloved facts until I started working on creating this U.S. state capitals crossword puzzle. I had to rely on our National Geographic Kids United States Atlas more than I care to admit.

One thing that I really like about this printable is that it is versatile. You can use this with a variety of ages from upper elementary school through high school. It can also be used in different ways. The United States State Capitals Crossword Puzzle printable can be used for practice, review, homework, or as a state capitals quiz or test.
Since there are so many states, this is a large puzzle. I couldn’t fit all of the clues and the grid on one page. The puzzle grid is on the first page of the PDF document. The second page contains all of the clues for the puzzle. The clues are simply the state name. The answer to that clue is that state’s capital city, which students will write in the appropriate spot. Because of this, each student working on this assignment or quiz will need a copy of both page one and page two.
The third page of the document is the answer key for the crossword puzzle.
