This week our 2nd and 3rd graders received a visit from Shelley Allen from the National Geographic Alliance. Shelley brought along her giant map and her very special friend, MIMAL. We got to learn who MIMAL was along with a few other of his friends. His story taught us how to remember all the states in our country along with other facts such as cardinal directions and the continents. We had a great time with Shelley and thank her for taking the time to help us learn our states! Have a look at some pictures and clips from our time with MIMAL.
Have you heard of MIMAL? Do you know any songs or rhymes that help you remember your states? Please share your videos or pictures in our comment section. We would love to hear from you!
