State Feast in Grade 3

During their study of the United States, the third graders completed travel logs on two states, and then chose a third state on which they became an expert.  The students researched the industry, products, landmarks, major cities, and symbols of their state and then each child chose a unique way to present what they learned. They created three dimensional displays, keynote presentations, iMovies, games and tri-folds.  Other projects included sewing state pillows, designing tee shirts and learning the Fifty States Song Set to Rhyme which, as part of decade long tradition, they will sing at an upcoming whole school assembly.

To culminate this study the third graders had a State feast!  From the red, white and blue decorations, to the awesome food representing products from each state, it was a wonderful way to celebrate all their hard work. Some of the foods they feasted on included huckleberries from Montana, salmon from Oregon, a king cake from Louisiana, key lime pie from Florida, lobster cakes from Maine, and cheese from Wisconsin. Thank you to all the parents who provided these delicious offerings and who helped during the feast!

State Presentations

As a culmination of their study of the United States, each third grader became an expert on one state.  They researched the industry, products, landmarks, major cities, symbols and interesting facts about their  state and then chose a unique way to present what they learned. They created three dimensional displays, keynote presentations, iMovies, games and tri-folds and shared their projects on Wednesday with students in other grades and their parents. The third graders also impressed everyone at our whole school assembly when they sang the Fifty States To Rhyme.
