What Is Minnesota? By-Isabella Brown
Transcript of What Is Minnesota? By-Isabella Brown
A place where
it can be super humid in the summer, and a place that will even snow in June!
Minnesota is a place where you would find lots of fish too!
Minnesota's state Bird is the Loon, and the state fish is the Walleye. The Minnesota's state baseball team is the M.N. Twins!!
The state flower is the Lady Slipper(my favorite!)
The Minnesota state tree is the Norway pine!
The Walleye, was Minnesota's choice as the official state fish in 1965.
The Walleye is a freshwater pike perch fish native to most of Canada and to the northern United States.
It is a North American close relative of the European pike perch.
The walleye has become a highly-sought game fish for Kansas anglers and has been stocked in most federal reservoirs and some larger state and community lakes. To help maintain these fisheries, millions of young walleye are collected and stocked each spring by department biologists and culturists. The state record for the walleye weight is about 13 pounds, and 3 ounces. The world record is 22 pounds, 11 ounces.
The Blue Berry Muffin
Minnesota officially assigned and created the blue berry muffin as the state muffin in 1988.
Wild blueberries are native to northeastern Minnesota, growing in bogs, on hillsides, and in cut over forested areas.
This is the Recipe to making a blue berry muffin:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. sugar
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
One-half cup milk
2 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
Hope You Enjoy!!!
The Norway Pine
What Is Minnesota?
The Lady Slipper
The Lady Slipper, Minnesota's state flower, is a flower that can be touched but picked.
The Lady Slipper was adopted as the State flower in 1902. The lady's slipper is uncommon to find in Minnesota even though it is the state flower! With the pink and white lady slipper's longer than average life span, some species may grow be 100 years old!
The Lady Slipper is to be found living in open fens, bogs, swamps, and damp woods where there is an abundance of natural light.
A century ago, the ostentatious pink and white lady's slipper was a favorite adornment in rural church altars during the summer. Since 1925, this rare wildflower has been protected by Minnesota state law; it is illegal to pick the flowers or to uproot or unearth them. Some specimens are difficult to find, but the bog at Beckman Lake in Isanti County is generally very fertile ground.
Minnesota's official state tree Norway Pine. The Norway pine is also called the red pine because of its pale red wood and red colored bark. The biggest Norway pine in Minnesota is 120 ft. tall and 37 in. diameter. A fun fact is the name Norway Pine comes from early explorers who thought the tree was a pine tree they had seen back at there home in Norway.
