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.

US Landmarks for Kids
There are so many beautiful landmarks in America, but today we are just focussing on the most famous 17.
We prefer to try and find our information from books, the 50 States book has a lot of the information, and for the rest, we use Mr. Google! Check out 20 of the best geography books for kids that will also help.
If you are using these in your homeschool, or in fact at school, I highly recommend this States card game. We love playing educational board games in our homeschool and this one is a winner! It is from the makers of the World game which is our favorite geography game of all time.
