06. The Midwest and Great Lakes (cc)

This program looks at crafts historically linked to the Midwest and Great Lakes' region. Great Lakes Collage - The Great Lakes hold one fourth of all of the fresh water in the world! No wonder so much activity revolves around the lakes in this region. Cow Weather Vane - Travel the roads of this region and you're sure to find all different breeds of cows especially the dairy cows that Wisconsin is famous for and the cheese made from the milk. Abe Lincoln Bank - Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the U.S., was born in 1809 in Kentucky, raised in Illinois, and nicknamed the Illinois Rail Splitter. He was also more widely known as Honest Abe, a perfect choice for our bank. States Book - Take a look at a map and see the various shapes created by the outline of each state. Those shapes are the basis for our book. Our first book is all about Ohio. Cardinal Tile - Cardinals are the state bird of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. This bright crested red bird can't be missed and also can be recognized by its shrill song. Our cardinal is found on a tile made from beads. 06/09DE/CC Closed-Captioned PIA 30 min.
