This week, we learned all about Ohio! We learned that Ohio is the name of our state and it’s capital city is Columbus. We also learned that our state bird is the Cardinal and our state flower is the Carnation! We also learned that our state tree is the Buckeye Tree, which is why Ohio is refered to as the Buckeye State! Did you know that Iroquois tribe also gave Ohio it’s name? The children also enjoyed learning some Chinese phrases and words with Ms. Mel durring our Afternoon Group Time! We also had some fun on Friday reading some St. Patrick’s Day stories!
