In lieu of being able to easily bookmark my favorite finds on 1KM, I decided to blog about them. I just stumbled upon Frank's states project, and I am truly enamored. I love the varied shapes of the states, already, and I am currently in the middle of creating a giant magnetic map / collage myself. I always find myself desiring a red and blue magnetic election map every four years (sometimes more often than that, just to play), and I just recently purchased a book with detailed state facts and history. I'm kind of a 4th grade U.S. History nerd.
Here's a fun (frustrating) game: There are 8 states that begin with the letter M. There are 8 states that begin with the letter N. Can you name them all?
Can you name all 50 (without using a song)?
