Include the following information:
*Why you are dressed the way you are; this information must
be added to your research; you must tell about the specific
person you are.
If you aren’t a specific person you still must completely explain
why you are dressed the way you are and give detailed information
*The state name, region, and how it got its nickname, name, etc.
*The state’s rank in land size and population compared to the
rest of the U.S.
*The order your state entered the union
*At least two important products produced in your state (this can be manufactured goods, farm products, natural resources, or even tourism)
*At least two very interesting or unusual trivia facts you have learned about your state
*Why someone would want to visit your state
*Your favorite thing you have learned about your state
(must be different from the unusual facts)
**Please note that although the students do write this detailed
speech about their state, the full speeches are not actually
delivered to all visitors at the fair.
The purpose of the speech is to help the students have the
important details about their state right on the tip of their tongue
as they are interacting with guests who visit their display.
We will be going over and practicing the speeches in class
the week before States Fair. Please encourage your student
to do the same at home with you.
