Animainiacs Wakko's US States

This lively video uses Wakko's song to accompany a map of the USA with the states outlined. As each state and its capital is mentioned in the fast-paced fun lyrics the state is filled in with color to identify it. Useful for learning the position of the states and capitals and also their pronunciation.

 As a back-up to rote learning this 50 states video is a useful addition to the many methods of learning your states and capitals. There is no totally easy way but a song does tend to stick in the mind.

Some other methods for kids to learn the 50 states can be found at

The above poem "The Young Outlaw" is from the book Stirring Western Poems by William Clark Painting by F.W Remington
