Road Trip USA: New Hampshire

Welcome to New Hampshire! We had so much fun learning about this state! Of course we started by adding the New Hampshire flag to our Travel Log:

Here are some of the things we learned about this week:

 

Here are a few things I managed to take photos of:

The kids have started swiping their Travel Logs like a credit card for entry into our state.

After reviewing all of the states we’ve learned so far, we located New Hampshire and Concord on our wall map.

After learning about the state symbols, we colored our worksheets.

In honor of Robert Frost and Fairy Tales by E.E. Cummings, we came up with a poem together, although I suspect they heard this somewhere because they spouted it out fairly quickly!

We added our animals to the animal wall after classifying them:

We played our states Jeopardy review game with our Jumbo Magnetic Spinner:

Since it was a review week, we filled in our mini-books for Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Then we added them to our Northeast binder divider.

In honor of New Hampshire Pure Maple Syrup, we had some Eggo’s and syrup. Yes, I know…a good homeschool mom should’ve made real pancakes, but this mom was up late the night before, and Eggo’s were easy. ;o)

We read Revolutionary War Days and decided to make a Hunter’s Bag. They were used to carry ammunition for young hunters. In frontier days bags were usually made of buckskin, we used felt ;o)

    Where did you get your heart pointer? It is so cute. If you made it, can you tell me how? Thanks for being so inspiring to me! I’m very new to this and your website has helped me so much.

  3. Welcome to New Hampshire!! Make sure you pronounce Concord the same way as “conquered”, and not “con-CORD” — a common error made by non-new Englanders. And you can tell your kids that the fall of the Old Man of the Mountain was truly heartbreaking to us. Another fascinating tidbit about our state is that it is home of Mt. Washington, which experiences some of the worst weather in the whole world (a top wind gust went unchallenged for a century or something like that before being edged out in another country). It is fun to see pictures of the weather station up on top of the mountain with everything held down by massive chains and coated with foot-thick ice. We’re a small state, but don’t hurry through! ;-)

  4. Erica, I am currently using your Exploration Earth curriculum with my kids and we are having so much fun. Next year, I plan to use the Roadtrip USA with my (then) 1st grade son. Thank you so much for your great work! Also, had to laugh – we have a couple of the same Upward Basketball shirts your son is wearing in your photo, here in our house!

    God Bless,
    Carrie
