About This Quiz

Do you know all of your U.S. states? Could you recognize and name them from an outline of their shapes? During this quiz, you will get the chance to prove your geography whiz status. If you can name all 40 of the states we present, you deserve a gold star! 

With 50 states, the United States offers nearly every landscape you could imagine. From rolling plains to deserts to rugged, mountainous regions, each U.S. state has a different set of characteristics. However, all we are asking you to do is to identify the state from the outline we give you. We promise not to venture into any specific territories that might distract you. 

While there is absolutely nothing wrong with using a map to assist you, we think you'll stand a better shot at impressing yourself by using only your memory and your internal knowledge of U.S. geography. Never fear! If you get stuck, we have provided you with a hint that you can use anytime you feel like you need it. 

How many states do you think you can identify? Set a goal for yourself, and start the quiz. We're quite confident that you will do better than you might think! Are you ready?
