You were always a geography ace. In fact, you've likely been to every state in the Union, including the outliers Alaska and Hawaii. So, you've been there done that, but how much do you really know about state abbreviations? You see them in the mail, in articles and even when you're reading books, but can you recollect all of them.
From the A's such as Arizona, Arkansas, Alabama, and Alaska it's easy to confuse which is which. Is Arizona AR or AZ? Is Arkansas AR or AK? Do you know what North Dakota looks like compared to South Dakota? You better if you want to figure out how to abbreviate the state name. Do you know how Okies or Cornhuskers abbreviate their states? How about the famous faces of Ben and Jerry (ice cream - duh), how would they send out their address?
From original colonies, famous people, landmarks, and their outlines we give you the clues to help figure out which state is which and how they are abbreviated. What's your reward? A pat on the back, bragging rights and of course a fun little fact. So, let's see how much you remember about your elementary state knowledge. We bet you do better than you think you will!
