wenvelope1a.jpgAmong the many assignments we have helped our daughters with, the state projects remain favorites. We often found ourselves visiting places we had learned about through their projects. We hope to add the state flags in a future update. Whether you have a state assignment, or just want to learn about the states for fun, the following state fun facts should give you a great place to start.

The state facts were tabulated from the following site. For more facts, games and other resources, click on the link to visit their site:

Parents and students in California are very familiar with the California missions. They are a significant part of our states history. Study of the missions takes on a life of itself as elementary students learn about the mission history through hands on experience through a variety of study projects that often include building models of the various missions along with other artistic projects. My oldest daughter took a unique approach and assumed the role of news reporter to create a video of a local mission.
