17 American Landmarks Worksheets For Kids (Free)
We absolutely love learning about America, and this month we have been focusing on famous American landmarks. These American landmarks worksheets can be used when studying the States of America, see our top tips on how to remember the States.
Despite there being hundreds of beautiful landmarks we have created free American landmarks worksheets for the most famous 17.
As we have been learning about the States of America we had heard of all of these landmarks, but have only actually seen the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. We managed to go to the top (well the 86th floor) a number of years ago and the view of New York was spectacular.
You can also incorporate some American geography board games to supplement these worksheets.
These geography worksheets are aimed at upper elementary and middle school-aged children.
