My goal in this project was to persuade my class to visit my state. Wyoming is filled with so much history and information, that it was hard to pick and choose which sections would be most persuasive to get people to visit the state. For me, the most difficult part of the project was the oral presentation. I had to say it over and over again until I had it memorized within the correct time limit. After putting together my talk, I still had one more step, create a presentation board for the state fair. Doing the presentation board was easy because I knew in my head where I wanted everything to go. After I placed everything down on the board, I thought it needed more color so I made a red border around the section headings.
Wyoming has so many interesting facts that it will amaze you. Wyoming is known for its beautiful parks such as Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone is filled with nature as well as animals such as grizzly bears, elk, buffalo, and deers all roaming throughout the park. Yellowstone has the largest population of grizzly bears in the United States! Yellowstone is not only filled with animals it also has waterfalls and geysers like Old Faithful. Old Faithful erupts every hour and astonishes the visitors viewing it.
Yellowstone isn't the only incredible place to see, there also is Devils Tower National Monument. This gigantic rock column was the leftovers of a volcano that erupted many years ago. As you continue your journey through Wyoming, I encourage you to look up and view the high peaks of Grand Teton National Park. These peaks rise over a mile above the valley floor! Wow!
Since Wyoming is natural wonders, it has the lowest population in the country. Don't let that discourage you from visiting, as the state has many dude ranches for people to explore and enjoy the Wyoming lifestyle of horse back ride and hardy foods. Wyoming also has the largest outdoor rodeo in the world! I hope I will be able to visit this state someday.
The whole 5th grade presented there posters to the other parents. After my mom visited my poster, she went around and viewed posters from some of the other states.
What interesting facts can you share about the state that you live in?
