To start off with, someone gives the state and some fact about the capital, or that state, the next person gives the capital of the state, and another fact about that state or capital. Then they would ask another state's capital and give a fact. so on and so on.

I know my niece comes on here loves to learn about cakes, but she pretty much sticks around this kind of thing, and I would like to give her another source of learning for other things.

Does this sound ok?



Iowa

1- The area code for the capital is 515,
2- The state was founded in 1843
3- The dome of the capitol is gilded in tissue-paper thin sheets of pure 23-karat gold, with a protective layer sealing the gold from the elements, and is 275 feet tall.
