The program is implemented at the beginning of the year as we learn about the states and sing state songs. The students work on these reports every Wednesday as our activity during crew meeting. They have about a half hour every Wednesday morning ALL year long to work on this report. There are many facets to this activity such as sending out letters to family across the USA asking for postcards, sharing postcards, pinning the states and post cards up as they come in through the mail, singing songs, mapping skills, learning about history of individual states, and representations such as state bird, flower or tree. It truly is a year long journey of discovery about a state.
