Due to popular demand, here is the first of six new states videos we filmed recently. We worked with a new talented presenter, Dylan Rourke.
We invite you to visit the great state of Massachusetts!
Massachusetts, nicknamed “The Bay State,” became the 6th state on February 6th, 1788. It is a state rich in history – the site of many key events in the Revolutionary War. Massachusetts is home to more than 180 colleges and institutions of higher learning (including Harvard, oldest in the nation). Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Island are also popular tourist destinations for the scenic shoreline and delicious seafood.
Our series of videos “Visit the 50 States,” gives you a little history and interesting facts about each state. For every state, you’ll learn when it entered the Union, what’s its motto, how did it get its nickname, and see what the flag, seal, and state capitol building all look like. We’ll find the state capital on the map! There’s also fun trivia – do you know the state tree, flower, and bird? Watch and find out!
These videos are perfect for middle-school and up.
Stay tuned for Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, and Montana!
