Gabbie’s State Fair

Gabbie’s class just completed their unit on the United States. Along with the 5th graders (Gabbie is in 4th grade), each student researched a state and completed projects about that state, wore a costume representing something from their state, and participated in a show in which they also performed skits about the region their state is a part of. Gabbie chose none other than the state of New Jersey. I joked that she could just bring in herself and dress as herself because she was born in New Jersey (and lived there for 4.5 years) but she didn’t like that idea!

I always love these school performances and seeing all the hard work pay off!

What a great project and ending event! She looks so great as Miss. NJ! I have 41 students and I am doing the model project on MA so we'll have 42/50 covered!

Cool project! I remember doing something like that as a kid. I was Miss Nevada. Is that your old license plate?

I did a state project too and I wasn't there when the kids chose states so I was stuck with Wyoming. Good thing was it was super easy to draw! Yes that is my old license plate, thanks for noticing!

I still remember doing my state project in 5th grade, so I can only imagine how Gabbie will remember hers. Mine was one Ohio since I had been there the summer before. Not necessarily a state most people would be dying to have, but I had fun with it.

too funny, I remember mine too. I had wyoming, because i wasn't in class when the states were chosen, so I got last pick or something. but it was easy to draw! and the funny thing is, I probably would have liked ohio, because that's where my cousins lived!
