Studying the States: Delaware

We are going to be studying the fifty states this year, going in the order they joined the union.  That made Delaware first up.  We used F is for First State and Don't Know Much About the 50 States as our spines but added many more books found at our local library.  Miss M did some notebooking, as well as memorizing the state capital, abbreviation, flower and bird.  She also watched this YouTube video.

We studied the horseshoe crab (Delaware's official marine animal) using several books from our library.  Our favorites were Crab Moon and High Tide for Horseshoe Crabs. We made a horseshoe crab using the template found here

Next up was the Lenape Indians.  She did a coloring page and watched several videos from this website.

Miss M wanted to make a dessert from Delaware, but none of us like peaches (peach pie is their official dessert).  So, she made jello with cool whip since Kraft has a large presence in Delaware.
