States in the US
Look at the map. Then read the list of states in ABC order. Note that the states of Hawaii and Alaska are not shown in the correct location. The reason for this is simple. Alaska is located at the end of Canada far above Washington to the left. One side of Alaska is located on the Pacific Ocean. It is not connected to the rest of the US. The state of Hawaii is a group of islands located in the Pacific Ocean and again is not adjoined to the US. Thus it, too, would not fit correctly on this map. The Pacific Ocean is on the left of the map in blue, the Gulf of Mexico is on the bottom in blue and flows into the Atlantic Ocean on the right in blue.
