State and Country Exploration

Update: All of the assignments are finished, but the assignments are still listed on the blog for anyone who would still like to do them.

Did you know that Jocelyndixon is hosting a State and Country Exploration blog for kids? You can read about it at her Lothlorien blog. Most recent State & Country Exploration assignments are stickied at the top of that blog.

Her idea is to encourage regular blogging (and learning at the same time) by assigning a specific blog topic each week (in this case learning and blogging about your state). If you would like to participate, post a comment at Jocelyn's blog - don't forget to let her know what state or country you are doing. Next, go to the State & Country Exploration blog to get the code for your state/country icon. Just look in the sidebar for the post about your state or country and go to the first comment. If it isn't listed yet, be patient and check back.

I think this is such a wonderful idea! I hope Jocelyn gets a great response. I'm looking forward to exploring all of the participants' states and countries.

    When Jocelyn told me about it, I thought, What a great idea... she has no idea how much she could do with this! I mean, I told her that she will have Moms who will have access to links from all the posts on the different answers.

    I am excited for her!
