Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and this year we are celebrating with a giant sleepover at my aunt’s house with nineteen family members!
Here at Surfnetkids headquarters in sunny Solana Beach , CA, before we shut down for Thanksgiving, we were busy working on games. Here are four of the newest games in our

#3. State Maps
by Barbara J. Feldman
State Maps Printable (** for premium members only)
In honor of November’s status as National Geography Month, this week’s topic is state maps. Whether you need printable, outline maps, or are searching for online geography games, you’ll find abundant treasures in these U.S. geography picks.
Eduplace: Outline Maps
Houghton Mifflin’s Education Place provides printable outline maps in Adobe PDF of all fifty states individually, by region and of the entire country. They also have specialized U.S. maps, such as those with postal codes, climate data, and physical geography. For dozens of interactive geography games, following the small link to GeoNet from the entry page. To see the list of available games, click on either the U.S. or World map.
NationalAtlas: Printable Maps
Odds are you are looking for all the usual (but useful) printable outline maps of the states, which the U.S. Department of the Interior has in spades. But they also have eight additional printable maps and seven interactive maps. Printable maps include Congressional Districts, Indian Reservations, Precipitation, and Presidential Elections. Interactive maps include Volcanoes, and Vegetation Growth. Don’t leave without exploring MapMaker, an online application that let’s you build a U.S. map to your specifications, and includes all sorts of unusual options, such as mapping hazardous waste handlers or red-backed salamanders.
To begin, select a state from the State Maps drop-down menu on the left. Each state page features a blank state outline map, an outline map with the state capital, and an outline map with border states. Beyond that, NetState.com has hot links to external maps for each state, so the extra offerings vary state by state. If you are looking for maps of the entire country, choose any state, because the U.S. maps (along with a couple of map games) are listed on all the individual state pages.
