We just finished our State Projects presentations this week (yes I know, cutting it close to the end!) and in "end of the year stress" fashion, I forgot to take pictures of their posters :o(. Instead I am attaching a slideshow of some of my favorites from last year. Last year's project was a little different as the students created parade floats about their state along with a written report. They did an AMAZING job, as you will see. The best part about this project was the creativity and the food. If you know anything about me, you know I like to eat! Probably at any given moment you can walk into my room and I am either snacking on something or there is food on my desk waiting to be snaked on, lol. So for extra credit I offered up points if they brought in a food from their state. I was very impressed with their effort and all the inventive homemade goodies they brought in: Peach floats from Delaware, Mississippi Mud Pies, Cowboy Stew from Montana, Buckeyes from Ohio, Whoopi Pies from Maine, and more. For a whole week I ate like a queen! If you click on the Smilebox below you will see just a few of my favorites (I had three classes last year).
