50 States in 50 Days
Mrs. Wagstaff's 2nd grade class at the Hancock Grammar School in Hancock Maine is studying the United States and they are seeking postcards from every state in America!
They started 2 weeks ago, and to date, they have received postcards from 33 states! To date they are missing postcards from Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, and West Virginia.
They are studying a state a day, and doing them in alphabetical order, like in the State Alphabet Song! Students are also doing mini research projects on a state of their choosing. They are having a "State Night" in May.
They are also keeping track of how many postcards they receive from each state and packages from Chambers of Commerce. They have received packages from 13 Chambers of Commerce, representing Delaware, Hawaii, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Vermont!
