My homeschooler asked me to asked you if you would be willing to help him with a project....

Greetings all... My homeschooler is doing a collection project for his US States book that we are working on.

Basically what we are doing is... we are investigating each state in unit studies that last anywhere from three days to a week.  He enters information about each state into his state book, and then does some online printable activities and research. One of the things that he would like to do is an art project for each state. He wants to print out maps and use glue to fasten dirt.earth from each state to the map and then glue these maps into the book.

So, what I am asking is if anyone would be willing to send me a small sample of earth from your state, in a small baggie (A few spoonfuls would do). My son would be eternally grateful to be able to complete his book.

Unfortunately, We can not afford shipping and handling for so many packages, but, my son would send thank you cards to anyone who helps him out. If you can not help, I completely understand, but I told him that I would at least ask.

I already have earth from Maryland and West Virginia, and I have earth coming from Mississippi and Florida.

If you would be willing to help us with the other states, please PM me so that I can keep track of who is sending and from what states...this was we will not duplicate. I will send you our P.O. Box if you PM. me.

Thank you so much,

Arianna
