Activity Instructions

Cover the capital names on the floor mat. Have a student hop on the mat as they say the capital names. Have them check if they have the correct answer as they continue down the mat.

Option 2: Have a student hop on the mat without looking at the blocks. A spectator will watch the student’s feet and say the state name out loud to the “hopper.” The hopper will then be asked to name the capital without looking down.
