Minnesota Map Cookie!
     3H students studied different Minnesota maps this year.  They then populated a paper map with various tourist locations, lakes, rivers, biomes, forests, and reservations.  Students then selected some of those components, and made a map key with their group. They then worked carefully to shape our state out of cookie dough. From there, they populated their map with the locations they choose. Then...the final test!  Could they identify all the places they put on their map????  If so, they enjoyed a delicious treat.  If not...bye-bye cookie!  What happened?!?!?

Track and Field Day!
     This year the Breck's track and field day theme was Minnesota Lakes.  Our class was assigned Lake Calhoun.  3H students wanted to recognize the original native name the lake was given.  They made signs to identify the lake as Bde Maka Ska.  The weather fortunately cooperated, and we had a wonderful event!











    Some Minnesota Notables! 
     3H students became familiar with people in Minnesota who have contributed something to our society. Students researched their lives to find out about their early beginnings and life journey. Here are some of the notables we heard from:
Kevin Garnett

The Andrew Sisters

Jimmy Jam Harris

Neal Brotten

Ann Bancroft

Tippi Hedren

Judy Garland

Al Franken

Charles Schultz

Prince

Kirby Puckett

Chris Mars and Paul Westerberg- The Replacements

Robert Vaughn

Jesse Ventura

Alan Page

Dr. C. Walton Lillehei

The Amazing Minnesota Destination Race!

The Amazing Minnesota Destination Race!
Wow!  It was so fun to see the places 3H students discovered and visited in their home state of Minnesota!  Through their videos, we went on mini field trips around the state.  Hopefully, these destination teasers will inspire families to take some Minnesota road trips this summer!  Enjoy the Bold North!
