Start here if you missed any of 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!! EEEK! I hope you enjoyed this month as we traveled across 31 different states in the USA.
Let’s go back almost to the West Coast and visit Nevada today. My family visited Las Vegas years ago when my oldest brother was in a National Youth Bowling competition. Unfortunately I had to work that week, so I couldn’t go with them. After hearing their stories and seeing the pictures of all the lights, I decided that one day I would like to visit – just to say I had seen it. I’m not a gambler nor a partier, so that does not appeal to me, but I would like to see all the lights and visit the different hotels just to say I have. Silly, I know…but fun, maybe.
Nevada was first explored by the Spanish and named for its snowy mountains in the winter. The area became part of Mexico when it gained independence in 1821. In 1848, the United States annexed the area after its victory in the Mexican-American war. It was then incorporated in to the Utah territory in 1850 until it became the 36th state on October 31, 1864. Although most of the state is desert, it is known for its mountains, especially in the winter. So its no surprise that the state bird is the Mountain Bluebird, adopted in 1967. The males are a bright turquoise blue, with a lighter underbelly, while the females have a duller blue wings and tail and grey breast, crown, throat and back. Today you can download the State Bird Coloring Pages for Nevada. Read more about this bird here while the kids color these pages. The coloring pages are available in print for the pre-writers, dotted manuscript for early writers and dotted cursive for upper elementary.
