My OHIO Wonders

During recent travels with my husband, we visited his home state, Ohio. I had so many wonders as we visited family in Cleveland, Akron, and Warren. I would see signs as we drove and I would ask Steve to slow down so that I could take a picture. Questions would flood my mind and I'd write them down in my journal (I try to never leave home without something to write with and my journal). One can learn a lot by reading the environmental print all around. Try it just for a day and amaze your students, your family and yourself.

  • How does salt get in a salt barn?
  • Who was James Garfield?
  • Why aren't all pumpkins orange?
  • Why is Ohio called the Birthplace of Aviation and the Mother of Presidents
  • Why are big trucks called 18 wheelers?
  • How many tires are on a transfer truck?
  • What is a Buckeye?
  • Why do leaves turn colors in the fall? #47
  • Who are the Amish? #1556
  • How did the Great Lakes get their names? Lake Erie, Erie PA, #321

Traveling is a great teacher. The lessons gained from going to new places or to old favorites yields much. To learn, to look, to wonder gives way to lessons that will last a lifetime. Happy wondering!
