Visitors Guide #1
In New York City there is a ballet school called The Julliard Ballet School. You can dance, watch plays, and watch ballet shows.
Visitors guide #2
In New York you can go and see the Statue of Liberty, and even go into her crown. You have to take a lot of stairs to get there. I don't think you can go to the top of the torch any more, but it is still a good sight to see of the Statue of Liberty!
Visitors Guide #3
In New York there is a building called The Empire State Building. It is a skyscraper and is the biggest building in New York. At night the Empire State building lights up and in the day you can go to it's restaurant.
Apple Muffin, Apple, Yogurt
- I really enjoyed doing a state report because I could gather information and put in cool images, symbols, and backgrounds.
- The most interesting thing about my state is that the Empire State Building is the tallest and biggest building in New York.
- The hardest part of the state report is gathering all the information and transporting the information into the report.
- The most fun part about the report is I got to learn about a place I have always wanted to go and there is a dancing school in New York that I want to go to really bad.
Evaluation Continued
- Where I felt I did a good job is spreading apart my words in all the different bubbles.
- The things that I would do differently is not to have so much word bubbles and maybe if I saw different backgrounds i would like one better.
- The advice I would give
to a person is to find good
information and make sure
to find a great backgrounds.
The apple is the state food because there is a building called the big apple. The apple muffin is the same reason. The reason why the yogurt is a state food is because they celebrate the growth of governor Andrew Cumo.
