fabulous fifth graders!

Here is a slide show of some of the states
we visited!

While visiting, we participated in a scavenger hunt and 
learned many interesting facts about the states.

Use your scavenger hunt sheet and share about what you learned

  1. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I loved the state fair, and I liked when we went to 3 classes to learn about the states. One of the states I learned about was Louisiana. Louisiana became a state in 1519. The state's nickname is the Pelican safe confidence. In Louisiana the Sabine river is really important.The Highest point is Driskill Mountain . It borders Texas and Arkansas. Another state I learned about was Wisconsin. Wisconsin became a state in 1848. The state nickname is Badger state.The state motto is forward.

    Thank you very much for reading.

    Your friend,

  2. Dear Mrs. Ranney and class,

    The Grade 5 State Fair looked brilliant. The amount of information and the care in presentation was very impressive. With 50 states to choose from, there was so much different information. Well done, Grade 5!

    Here in Australia we really only have six states and two main territories for children to study so students wouldn't be able to have so many different displays.
