Hi Amberovalle....

The most northern state is Minnesota - 45 degree north of the equator.  The most southern state is Florida - 27 degree north of the equator.

Just a note: looking at the map, you may think that Maine is the most northern state but Maine is actually 44 degree north of the equator.  Because the world is "round" - having the map flattened out makes Maine looks higher in latitude but it's really not.

Hope this helps!
