We need your help. We are the Anselmo-Merna fourth-grade class. Our home is in Custer County, in rural central Nebraska. The school has students from two towns and the surrounding farming and ranching area; 21 in fourth grade.
We are doing a project with our third-grade class called the States Fair. Each of us is researching a state and will be presenting our learning in May at our States Fair. Our teachers wanted to help us make researching more interesting by contacting newspapers in various states and asking readers for help.
We are hoping that you can mail us artifacts from your state, such as brochures, pamphlets, pictures, non-perishable products unique to your area, leaves from native plants, small rocks or shells, or other small items. We would like to have our items by May 1. Thank you for your help! Anselmo-Merna Public Schools
