Here is a new addition to my growing US 50 States Map card collection, the New Jersey Map card! This was sent to me by Stephen, a middle school teacher who probably went looking for uniforms and these map cards in a local shop. 🙂 He is from one of my various swap groups on Facebook. I got it a few months back.
Here are a few tidbits of information about this State:
- State Capital is Trenton
- It is third of the original 13 states
- State motto is “Liberty and prosperity”
- State Tree is Red Oak
- State Flower is Bogbice Violet
- State Bird is Eastern Goldfinch
Stephen wrote this at the back of the card:
Glad we could swap cards. I spent a couple of weeks in New Jersey working in June. Normally I am in the L.A. area where I work as a middle school teacher. Best wishes!
Thanks so much for this beautiful card! ^_^
