Our homeschool group had an Educational Fair last week. It was similar to an old fashioned science fair. Each student chose a state to explore in depth. Then they made a presentation on that state. They also made a dish native to the state they chose, so we could sample them.
My son, Mitchell, chose Hawaii. It was interesting to learn some new things about Hawaii that I didn't know. For instance, did you know Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the world if measured from the base of the Pacific Ocean to it's peak? I also learned that Kilauea has been spewing lava continously since 1983. That is really cool!
I learned a lot from the displays by other children. Some of my favorites were Georgia, Florida, and Missouri. It was a very fun night. They even had a train for little ones to take a pretend trip around the country. Everyone who participated got a certificate with a blue ribbon.
