We started the day with Arizona Tea. Arizona Tea? Is that even from Arizona?
When we started going through the States one of the students said, ” I can’t wait until we do Arizona. We can drink Arizona Tea.” Knowing how much Miss Sherry loves tea, this idea was not a stretch. However, the discussion still remains is Arizona Tea made in Arizona?
In short it was born in Brooklyn. BROOKLYN? Yes, this tea is straight out of New York.
(Some one may walk away with a New York brag tag today if they can answer some NY Trivia.)
Life Is Sweet
Born in the heart of Brooklyn…
Born in the heart of Brooklyn, AriZona® Beverages came onto the scene with a fresh take on iced tea, which has now taken the world by storm.
Since 1992, our mission has been to bring our customers great-tasting products, using top-quality ingredients, presented in uniquely designed packaging, skillfully produced and made affordable to everyone. https://drinkarizona.com/pages/about-us
This BIG Z drink actually has NOTHING to do with Arizona.
When Don Vultaggio was considering names for his new iced tea business three decades ago, he wanted something that connoted a “warm and healthy environment.”
That meant getting far away from Brooklyn, where Vultaggio grew up. But not too far away: His friends called his New York home the Santa Fe house, because of its adobe-style design, filled with pink, yellow and turquoise colors. So he settled on “Santa Fe” for the name of the drink.
Now here we have Arizona Tea. On the Original Brand Arizona Tea it boasts Southern Style Real Brewed Sweet Tea. We talked about tea in the south and Miss Sherry’s favorite tea.
We used this time to come up with our own marketing campaign.
We also had burritos for snack and talked about southwestern style dishes.
We read the first few chapters of Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling.
Aven Green is a thirteen-year-old girl who was born without arms. She loves to make up crazy stories about what happened to her arms. This story allowed us to discuss several situations with the students and the need for kindness. Diversity and inclusion of individuals with challenges is a very important lesson that we try to teach our students. Insignificant Events In The Life Of A Cactus is a wonderful book to teach with awareness.
We all came together and painted Desert Art.

1. Reading List: https://www.getepic.com/app/user-collection/9996994
2. Math: Arizona is one of four states at Four Corners. A great math activity is to count up all the borders. Count the bordering states to all 50 states and tell us the total. How many borders are there?
3, Science: The Grand Canyon was formed by erosion. Build your own erosion experiment at home.
Write a short story about the Grand Canyon using facts from this website: Arizona make sure your short story includes at least 3 Arizona facts.
5. Book Pick: Each state I (Miss Sherry ) am trying to include a book pick that is good for a slightly older reader. Arizona is Insignificant Events In The Life Of A Cactus. I loved being part of Aven Green’s life and reading about her life in Arizona.
Arizona holds the largest percentage of Indigenous Americans. Research each of the 21 tribes in Arizona and right one sentence for each tribe.
There is nowhere in North America that draws the artist out of someone like the desert. Paint a picture.
Bonus: For dinner make Navajo Tacos. There is nothing more yummy than Taco Night.
