Today we learned about Georgia, as well as Martin Luther King, Jr.
I Have a Dream is a shortened version of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, beautifully illustrated by Kadir Nelson.
We had white peaches and crackers for snack.
Later we read the State Profiles book for Georgia on Sora.

Georgia On My Mind.
The kids loved learning about Georgia. The great package the received from the Georgia Public Library Service, or the delicious Peach Cobbler that Grandma Library made, or the fun activities with Ms. Megan and Mrs. Q; it was a great day.
Georgia Public Library Service’s website is so great that it in and of itself is enough to cover all 7 activities.

6. History: Read a book about Martin Luther King Jr. and talk with your family about how he changed history.

I love having kids hear Dr. King’s words. The art in this book is done by Kadir Nelson and it is beautiful.
Grandma Library Peach Cobbler:
1 box white cake mix
1 can of peaches
1 stick of butter
It sounds so simple, but it really was. She mixed the egg, cake mix and the can of peaches and put it in a baking dish. Sliced up the butter and put it evenly throughout. Baked at 350
(Make sure when using the stove you ask your parents. )
This is an easy enough recipe you can do it yourself.
