Sharing is caring!

The state of Virginia is one of the oldest states in the U.S. after Florida. The settlement of Jamestown is a famous historical site, having been founded in 1620. Since then, Virginia has grown into a major U.S. state, home to large corporations, important agricultural industries, and sporting teams.

What a lovely collection of crafts to go with a unit study of Virginia. We've been doing a state by state study of the states and US history. We might just need to try a few more crafts out for Virginia.

Thank you for including our tin can lantern craft. We enjoyed doing it as a colonial America craft.
