Pennsylvania, a summary, and some other ideas or some such

Hmmm, chocolate is starting to get to me.  I can feel the sugar coming in, or maybe that’s my body starting to de-stress and calm down.  Take your pick.

Going around from left to rightish, on the left hand side:
Pennsylvania picture from Musings of Me
envelope with Union and Confederate soldiers
Berenstein Bears picture
State Symbols page (link to printable will be below click on the picture)
F is for Firefly drawing
Right hand page:
Ben Franklin inventions
Chocolate activity
Not in yet: firefly book (click on the picture to go to the printable)
pennyslvania state symbols
Other activities that didn’t have a printable:
Hershey fraction math
Liberty Bell
Amish/handkerchief doll

And sigh of accomplishment, Pennyslvania is done.  There was a lot there and we barely even scratched the surface even with 2 weeks on it.

Other things you could study that we didn’t even get to: more on the Amish, Crayola, there’s a couple of books on repeating Ben Franklin’s experiments, Gettysburg Address (there is an awesome picture book of this but I couldn’t find it and I don’t know the illustrator, but it’s pen and ink drawings, LOVE it), and I’m sure a whole LOT more.

  1. I feel that way about most of the states we study. I could spend so much time on each state. Originally, I wanted to do one state a week so that we could finish in a year, but once we started, I found so many things that I wanted to do. Now, we just go at our own pace.

  2. What a wonderful state study. When I think of Pennsylvania, I think of the Amish. The farms are beautiful on rolling hills. The roads are a bit crazy, however, as they are narrow and go up an down. The people drive on them as if they are straight and wide. Hee-hee. I enjoyed seeing all the fun things you have done.

  3. Wow, you did a lot! And I'm thinking we should drive to PA with the kids for a hands-on unit study when they're a little older, since we're only a few hours away!

  4. Great unit study. You really had a lot of interesting books and activities for this unit. It's times like this when I read these types of posts that I wish we were a traveling family, and could go see these places for real!
