Happy day to you!!

Have you ever been to Kansas before? If you have never visited, are you ready to learn some cool facts about Kansas? Joey and Jinger love learning cool facts about all of the different states. They would like me to share some of those cool facts with you! Every Thursday I will be posting cool facts about each of the fifty states in the United States. The states will be done in alphabetical order! Last week we posted facts about Iowa. This week we are posting cool facts about Kansas.

Did you know that Kansas was the 34th state to join the union? Yes, that is right! Kansas officially joined the union on January 29, 1861! Kansas is located in the Midwestern region of the United States. Kansas is bordered by four (4) states: Missouri, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Nebraska. Kansas is the fifteenth (15th)largest state in the United States. Kansas is one of the bigger states. There are about 2,919,179 people living in Kansas. Did you know that Amelia Mary Earhart was born in Kansas? Amelia Earhart was an author and was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. 

 

What famous person lives in your state?

 

Cool facts about Kansas:

1. A few things Kansas is known for are: the Wizard of Oz, wheat, and oil wells. The nicknames for the state of Kansas are: The Sunflower State, the Jayhawker State, and the Wheat State. The Sunflower State is Kansas’s official nickname. The Sunflower State became Kansas’ official nickname sometime in 1903. The Kansas state motto is Ad astra per aspera. Ad astra per aspera means, “to the stars through difficulties.” The Kansas state motto was adopted on May 25, 1861. The abbreviation for Kansas is KS.

2. The capital of Kansas is Topeka. Topeka officially became the capital of Kansas sometime in 1861. Topeka has an estimated population of around 125,963 people.

5. Kansas’s state flag was officially adopted on March 23, 1927. The flag was designed by Hazel Avery. Hazel Avery was a seamstress that lived in Kansas. Kansas’ state flag has blue background.

Enjoy your beach vacation

Happy 1st day of summer


Summer is that time of year when some people take vacations at the beach! Spending lots of time with your family and friends. Splashing in the water and making sand castles with the little ones. Kicking back and relaxing on a nice warm sunny day on a blanket in the sand with a book in your hands.

  • Don't forget to pack a cooler with nice cold refreshing drinks and snacks in it.
  • Always protect yourself and your little ones from getting sunburn.
  • Try to get to the beach as early as you can.
  • Bring towels and extra clothes.
  • Bring some sunglasses and an umbrella.
  • Don't forget toys for the kids and a book for you.
  • Have a sand castle contest.
  • Have lots of fun and stay safe.



Who loves going to the beach?
