License Plate Mixer

Materials:
list of state slogans

Directions:
Here's a take-off on a game some folks have played while traveling in a car. List on a blackboard, overhead, or handout the following state slogan from license plates. Then have your group divide up into teams to identify the correct state for each slogan. The team that correctly identifies the most states wins the game. You can play the game several times by only using ten states at a time. If the game seems too difficult for your age group, provide the state names as well (out of order) and make it a matching game.
