Today is the last day in our Across the USA in 31 Days series. Every day this month I have brought you a small sample of printables from my larger eBook, which will be released this week. (We had a slight snafu with the release of the ebook as I have been extremely sick and in the hospital this week. I am home and trying to recover, so know that the ebook is on its way.) I hope you will join me enjoyed this month as we traveled from state to state across the USA.
I thought with all this winter going on around me, I would end in a nice, warm state – California. My brother is being stationed in California in just a few weeks and I hope we can visit him during his time there. I have been there 3 times in my life and enjoyed each visit. If we had all the time in the world, we would visit the San Diego Zoo, Disneyland, Universal Studios, the Redwood Forest and so much more. But, we’ll take what we can get and hopefully at least get a visit with my brother and his family in at some point.
Today you can download the California State Flag Coloring Pages. California was ceded to the United States in 1848 after the Mexican-American War. The Western portion of Alta California was organized as the state of California and then admitted to the Union as the 31st state on September 9, 1850. The Gold Rush, which began in 1848, opened the door to large-scale immigration from the east and abroad with an accompanying economic boom, while also leading to dramatic social and demographic change. The state flag was officially adopted in 1911 by the State Legislature, however it was first raised on June 14, 1846 by a group of American settlers in revolt against Mexican rule. The flag was designed on a new unbleached cotton by William Todd. The star in the top left corner imitated the lone star of Texas. A grizzly bear centered on a white background represents the many bears seen in the state. The words, “California Republic” in all-caps is placed beneath the star and bear. The coloring pages are available in print for the pre-writers, dotted manuscript for early writers and dotted cursive for upper elementary.
