Our homeschool group hosted a fun event last week. It was called Eat Your Way Around the USA. The way it worked was that each family signed up to host a table on a different State. At each table there was information about that State, a bite size snack of food from the State and the kids got a stamp in their passport from each State. IT WAS A BLAST!
My family hosted the California table.
I wanted to do California because:
A) All the kids were born there.
B) We did a year on CA when my oldest was in 4th grade and so I have LOTS of stuff!
C) WE LOVE CALIFORNIA!!!!
I decided that since there is SO much history in CA we needed to put aside our regular schoolwork and focus on this for 6 week. So here is what we presented.
Here is what was on the table...
This area was about the food grown in CA and things invented in CA. There are a lot more things that were invented there than this. We displayed: jeans, a computer mouse, sour dough bread, a Barbie, a Frisbee, a hula hoop and a fortune cookie!In the notebook we had a coloring book I found about the A to Z of food grown in CA.
So that was it. We had a total of 20 States represented. Everyone did such a great job with their displays. We learned SO much and had a great time together with our friends!
