We have made it exactly halfway through our 50 states! We have traveled from Alabama to Missouri!! We have opened care packages from most of them and had such a great time tasting and touching our way through the many rich traditions and cultures that each unique state adds to our great country!
Louisiana may have been one of our favorite states to study! We received a wonderful package filled with Mardi Gras beads, a Voo Doo doll and potato chips, pralines, an authentic Muse shoe and more. We also had a special guest (a.k.a. Mr. Flad) come in and play music for us while we sampled Mrs. Flad's delicious Jambalaya!
Each package has been different and the kids get so excited when we get to open a new one. Thank you to everyone who has helped our class by sending us a care package!! We can't wait to see what we open next! Below is just a sample of the amazing artifacts we've received!
The kids are keeping a wonderful notebook filled with what they have learned about each state. Check out some samples below. Be sure to read our "fun facts." We bet you just might learn something new too!!
Montana here we come!!
