Dr. Lodge McCammon is making a series of songs about each of the 50 states of the United States that 4th grade teachers should grab onto and have their students create! I can see this project with the song in the background and pictures from the state. Either that or just take one state and make a class project. Here is Lodge's offering for Pennsylvania. Since 4th grade is the year that students study Pennsylvania here in the Commonwealth, I thought it was a good time to introduce it to my 4th grade teacher friends.

I should be working on my assignments for a grad class but while I was checking in on my Plurk buddies someone posted the video below. I can't help it; I LOVE it so much that I had to post it here. Talk about intrinsic motivation! This young man not only gets it, he’s on his way to becoming a creative innovator! Too bad he didn’t make it to the next round of the Poetry Slam!
