Ms. Noodlehead has “literally” dozens of facts and figures to share with students about the Peach State’s history, geography, and folklore. Students discover it’s not all poultry, peaches, and peanuts in the Vidalia onion capital of the world. From the Okefenokee swamp to the mountains of North Georgia, from the sandy beaches of Sea Island to the bustle of metro Atlanta, students leave Ms. Noodlehead eager to know more about the state they call home.
