California and Sacramento Hi Parents, Grandparents, Teachers and Home Schoolers! I’m, Mr. Mim and it’s my job to help you teach your kids geography. I can give you some tips on teaching geography to your children, that will make learning about geography fun! Sometimes I teach the geography of the United States, and sometimes I teach about the United States state capitals. I use rhymes and mnemonics to help your children remember the fifty states and capital cities, this makes it fun and you can read them together. Remember geography is about going places, and that’s fun! We are using the letters in the state names and capitals and linking those to short facts about the state and the capital. These letters then serve as mnemonics or memory aids for those facts while they offer a challenge to the kids to remember what all the letters stand for.
