South Carolina is the eighth state in our Weekly Homeschool State Studies.
To start this week’s state study I added the state outline to our bulletin board, as well as the Capital and Postal Abbreviation along with a photo of the state flag, bird, flower and tree.
Bird: Carolina Wren
Flower: Yellow Jessamine
Postal Abbreviation: SC
We then watched this short video from Homeschool Pop:
Each child then completed this week’s outline including discussing the importance of Fort Sumter.
Unique State Food: I came across these Benne Wafers from the Olde Colony Bakery in Historic Charleston and ordered online in time for this week’s study. We loved learning about the history and significance of Benne (sesame) to the area and these were a very unique tasty treat!
As always we browsed through the two resources I mention more in depth in the state studies intro. My youngest loves coloring the placemats from America: State by State and we all are really loving the Awesome 50 States book!
Travel Bucket List: The Angel Oak on Johns Island. I’ve read photos do not do it justice and would love to see it in person one day!
