Yesterday, we explored our first state : The First State! Delaware, capital Dover, one of the smallest states on the map but packed with people.

Our interesting fact for the day : Delaware has a body of water called Little Assawoman Bay.

I'll give you a minute to stop laughing and breathe. How could we never have known this before yesterday? That seems like crucial information to me!

Here was the start of our scrapbook entry; Alexei is responsible for finding and recording all of the info for the two left pages for each state, and Ibis for neatly coloring and cataloguing the page on the right. We'll also add neat photos from our tourism brochures as they arrive, and postcards from other homeschooling families. Alexei will also add a rubbing of the state quarter when we find it; where's a Delaware quarter when you need one?

Note - You can find links to all of the great sites we used to gather our facts, print out page templates, and play fun geography and coin games to the right, under Fifty States links.
