Your State report in the fourth or fifth grade

I feel my life has been all downhill after I got stuck with boring Vermont.

What do they do up there 'cept suck on maple trees?

That's funny, OP, mine was New Hampshire. Before writing, I cut the report booklet into the shape of the state. It was a pain in the ass - you can't write very much on a small page that looks like New Hampshire. I got an A.

Fuck you both OP and R1. Die in a hideous grease fire.

You're in a good state, OP, so shut up.

Vermont is hardly boring. It was an independent country. It elects a Socialist U.S. Senator. Feel sorry for the kids who got Delaware or Oklahoma.

Nah, we'll stick with feeling sorry for the little blighters who drew Vermont.

Thanks though ...!

R6, Vermont is a progressive, pro-gay marriage, non-violent state.

Those are just words to fourth and fifth graders R5. Granite quarries, maple syrup, and snow skiing were the main highlights.

Not too shabby if you ask us.

I personally feel my life went downhill because I was part of the generation that was supposed to convert to the metric system. I was using the workbooks in 3rd and 4th grade, and then suddenly the country gave up. What happened? Why did we fail?

Oh, and my state was North Dakota.

If we took all the Manhattan skylines modeled in multicolored clay by all the elementary school kids across America....

I got California. It was overwhelming.

by Anonymousreply 1311/29/2011

North Dakota was easy. I just wrote about Mount Rushmore. I got an A+.

I got West Virginia (I'm in MA). Can't tell you what I said. I'd just arrived in the US the previous year and my English was still shaky. My tutor helped me write it. I was a good artist so I drew a map with mountain ranges and national parks and stuff. My teacher liked it.

Vermont is awesome! How dare you.

I got Utah for some reason. I remember being excited about it. It's still the only reason I know it's "The Beehive State".

by Anonymousreply 1701/07/2012

Try writing a report on Kansas for some suckitude.

by Anonymousreply 1801/07/2012

R17, I had Utah also and had to make a diorama. I made a beehive for the background. My mom constructed a garland of the sego lily ( state flower).I got an A and knew I was Harvard -bound.

Delaware, 5th grade.

We drew names for partners & mine was the garbageman's daughter (one of 11 kids) -- nice girl, though dim -- I called the shots & she did as I told her.

I wrote a little play starring me as a game warden, with her as a tourist who asked to be told about delightful Delaware, which I did. My office was decorated with the state flag (which I made from an old piece of white sheet with a picture of whatever the state tree was) & there was an intercom on my desk (which I made out of a shoebox with toothpaste tube caps for the dials) -- I sat with my feet up on the desk, reading the newspaper, & pretended to receive a message from my secretary over the intercom, announcing the inquisitive tourist.

We both got an "A", though I was the one who did all the work -- I didn't begrudge her, because she let me be the boss. Nowadays, she probably doesn't remember any more about Delaware than I do.

I got Arizona. I don't remember the grade.

R19's mother helped. CHEATER!

I got Virginia, long interesting history. I decided to draw a large version of the state flag, including Virginia's Virtus' titty in the middle of the state seal. I got some flack from my mom for not drawing some cloth over her boob. But it was too late, it was already in the report cover. Thats probably why she thought I was straight for many years after that!

On Wiki it says her breast is the only nudity in all 50 state seals. Virginians are perverts!

Now that I think about it, our grades in elementary school weren't A,B,C,D,F -- they were E (Excellent), S (Satisfactory), P (Passing), & U (Unsatisfactory). I was a straight E student, except for math (usually P, occasionally S).

I got massachusetts. A friend of mine got Vermont and he wasn't to happy.

by Anonymousreply 2503/22/2013

I got New Hampshire but now don't remember a single thing about it. My country was Italy and I talked about it being a boot and Pompei. Another year I had Chile and I talked about coffee.

Strange, we had to do our books on our home state: Maine. Unsurprisingly there was a lot of overlap for letters Q (quartz, Quoddy Head Light), X (???), Z (aZalea).

Wyoming. Salt map, which I though was the height of humor.

Wisconsin or Minnesota, I forget which, cemented the fact that I never wanted to live in a cold climate. I ended up in VA and would love a warmer climate.

Kentucky. State bird is the cardinal. That is all I remember.

I selected Texas. Even at age 10 I was a size queen.

by Anonymousreply 3103/22/2013

I picked Virginia because of Monticello and the Skyline Drive. Scammed my parents into taking me there on a teacher workday long weekend. (From Ohio) I got an A!
