Our state- the study of Michigan

In geography, we took a week to study our state- Michigan! This was a fun week as the children made a really cute Michigan book to take home. 
During the week, the children learned about and colored pictures of our state flower, mammal, reptile, fish, bird, flag and tree. 
We made covers for the book by tracing their hands. 
We put the pages in and stapled.

This week we talked about the Native Americans in Michigan and danced on the circle to songs of the Great Lakes Indians - Honor the Earth Powwow.  The children loved this dancing, we did this as a group.
The afternooners had a pancake lunch one day.
We made Michigan cookies today!  YUM!  The children love to roll out the dough and press the cookie cutter down.  They really love to eat the cookies!
