One of the great things about living in the United States is the vast array of landscapes, wildlife, environments and cultures that make up the country. Each state has its own unique qualities that make it different from any other state. What are some features in your state that make it special? Discuss with your class and make a list on the board.
Break into small groups and research to find more information about the state in which you live. What’s the state bird? Is there an official color of your state? Does your state have a nickname or slogan? How did the name originate?
Show how proud you are to live in your state by designing a Welcome Sign for visitors.
