Parade of States

During this 12 weeks of Co-op, the children had the chance to participate in an independent project, a state parade float. The kids chose a state, studied it at home, and created a float to represent what they learned about the state. The children paraded their floats through the audience at our end of the year program after a rousing performance of 50 Nifty United States. It was fun to see what they used as bases... skateboards, wagons, mini tractors, cars.California

Love the floats! I've never seen that idea before. :-) And, of course I love the Texas one... everything is bigger in Texas!

What a brilliant idea! Sort of a rolling diorama! I love it and I'm going to link to this on my shoebox diorama lens!
