We began by reading B is for Buckeye and then Bean used the information she learned to make a notebook page for her United States scrapbook.
Picture books for Ohio included Lentil (one of our all time favorites!), One Giant Leap (Neil Armstrong was born in Ohio), and Warm as Wool. American Girl Kit is set in Ohio, so you can read her stories this week as well.
We also taught the kids about Ohio using the Our United States of America: Catholic Social Studies textbook.
Tasty buckeyes were an easy pick for our Buckeye state food. They look like buckeye nuts, but aren't poisonous... just addicting. Kids can pull these off with minimal help!
In honor of Neil Armstrong, we made astronauts out of toilet paper tubes with this free printable from DLTK. Such a cinch!
Louisiana, we are coming for you next!
