miss beans // project of all second grade projects

map1104 (map via mr. printables)

::UPDATE:: (Nov 7th) We are SO close, most States are in the works but we have yet to find people for: Kansas, Delaware, Wisconsin, Georgia and So. Carolina. THANKS for everyone’s  response and enthusiasm on this project, we appreciate all your reposting, comments and connections. ::

Lucy is working on  a rather ambitious project, we are finishing up our lesson on The States and Capitols and thought it would be awesome to meet a person from ALL 50 states! This was the first we started on ‘meeting’ our way through the country and learning about each state from a personal perspective, other than from books or sites. She already has learned so many interesting facts, heard some hilarious personal stories and listened to peoples’ family history and connection to each state. AND has met some really amazing people!! I can see that there is an excitement and a newfound love of where she lives and this will be a project she will remember forever. She is really excited about this adventure, although it sometimes doesn’t translate well via video chat- she is also learning how to break the ice quickly with these new acquaintances.

As you can see we are making our mark on the map. I was hoping with a little help from you and the power of the internet, we can make this come true. The star-less states are where we need kind folks for 10 minutes of their time via video chat with Lucy to answer some simple questions about their state. If you or anyone you know might be willing to help this come into fruition please contact me at: deshaigh{at}gmail{dot}com for more info and please feel free to share this!

If all things go well, this is what our map will look like after the weekend! I will keep this map up to date as things change and can’t wait to share the final results with everyone!
