Tour the States

This year in Fifth Grade students are required to learn about early United States history and each of the fifty states. So, I found this cool, catchy, and artistic video to help us do just that. My students have already learned the song and are excited that they will sing and perform a routine later in the school year. After watching the video, which state or part of the video was your favorite and why?

  1. I love Tour the States! My favorite State in the video was New York. Keep up the good work Mr. Tabbah.

  2. Hi! This is Abigail. I think my favorite state of the song was Hawaii. I liked Hawaii because It is a really cool island to go to visit. It is also very beautiful to see the volcano there. I have always wanted to go there. Have you been to Hawaii?

  3. Hi! This is Mrs. Tabbah. Abigail, I have been to Hawaii and it is very beautiful. Our family loves to swim, surf, and paddleboard in the Pacific Ocean. I think you would love it too! Be sure to ask Jake and Mr. Tabbah about lava tubes made by the volcanoes. My favorite state in the song is Alaska! I had the chance to ride a helicopter and go dog sledding on a glacier. This part of the song brought back great memories for me. 🙂 Anybody else visit Alaska or Hawaii?

  7. Well, I would love to go to Alaska and If I had the chance I would also like to ride a helicopter. Plus I would like to ride a snowboard, or go dog sleding with my mom, dad, brother and I. This would be the perfect place to hang out with the family.
