We colored the cover to be very colorful! Our motto is "Virtue, Liberty, and Independence" Coloring the pictures was my daughter's favorite part of the project.
Top left is how Pennsylvania got it's name. There is a map where we put large cities, important rivers, our tallest mountain, neighboring states, mountain range, and more. The map is blank and you can do a number of things with it. The keys are "Key Facts" about PA. The bottom left is a recipe box.
William Penn brought a colony to practice free religion. He named "Penns Woods" after his father. My kids hate writing so I wrote everything down, but we talked, colored, cut and glued together.
The recipe for PA was a cheese steak sandwich. I would like to add pork and sauerkraut, sandwiches with fries on them, sand tarts, and whoopie pies as other recipes that should be put in for PA. My son's favorite part of this project was going out and getting cheese steak sandwiches one day. He requested making whoopie pies, but I haven't tackled that yet.
You also get a bonus page on each state. We read through it and highlighted interesting facts and people. I learned that PA is the 2nd state to enter the union. I am not surprised but I didn't know it.
The instructions for the activities are clear and easy to follow.
There are more Activity-Packs available to buy and download including The Old Testament, The New Testament, Composers, and Artists. I am interesting in composers and artists because I don't do enough music and art appreciation in my homeschool and that would fill a whole.
