Create a welcome sign for your state! Explore the symbols and unique qualities of your state and design a shiny sign to welcome visitors as they cross over the border.
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. Students identify some features in their home states that make them unique. Create a list of students contributions on a classroom white board using Crayola Dry Erase Markers.
Organize students into small groups. Challenge students to research more information about the state in which they 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?
Students show how proud they are to live in their home states by designing a Welcome Sign for visitors. Using Crayola® Metallic Colored Pencils, children write the name of your state on a piece of white paper in large letters. Encourage students to be creative!
Suggest to groups that they feature some of the researched fun facts that makes the state unique. Surround the state’s name with symbolic illustrations so visitors can easily see what makes the state special. Fill drawings with bright, shiny Crayola® Metallic FX Crayons!
Provide students with the opportunity to share their signs with the class and discuss how the symbols incorporated into the drawing represent the state.
