As you can see there’s not a lot in the book itself, but there is some stuff (including the Valley Forge page, which I’ve since learned should be in Pennsylvania……).
And my usual state symbol page. The kids were amused at some of the symbols, but mostly they liked the dinosaur.
I need to start a graph of how many different states have bee as their state insect.
Thomas Edison– you have to click on the link to get the full idea, but his lab was here, and he made a LOT of inventions.
The paper with his name on it has a picture of three of his inventions.
Other activities not pictured, or that we didn’t get done:
My kids still try to get out their bags of pieces from time to time…….
Blueberries– Wildly popular book series (okay in my house, it’s out of print in reality) about two Polar Bears trying to steal blueberry muffins. One of the things New Jersey is known for.
Diners- New Jersey has the most diners per capita of any other state I found some cute books, one of which called Minnie’s Diner, totally recommend that one, and it was going to be a great math multiplication activity. It just never happened. Seriously, I had to recheck that book about 2 times.
