We’re participating in the Great American Postcard Swap with other homeschool families, sending out postcards all over the country, and hopefully receiving 50 in all!
Our first postcard arrived — from Alabama. The boys were so happy to have mail! We will be learning about the states and filling out notebooking pages as we go along.
Some facts about Alabama:
- The capital of Alabama is Montgomery.
- In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus, and the Montgomery bus boycott began. The state tree is the southern longleaf pine, the state bird is the yellowhammer, and the state flower is the camellia.
- The state motto is: “We dare defend out rights.”
The United States and State Birds and Flowers Dover books are affordable and informative–my kids color while listening to read-alouds. They’re a nice addition to our state notebooking pages or for a change of pace and are also easy to bring on-the-go with a pouch of Prismacolors.
