Challenge09 #3 – This IS Virtually Where I Live


We would really love for each of our blog visitors to visit us here in Texas, but we know that it is not possible for some of you to physically travel to the United States. For that reason, we are excited about this week’s Blog Challenge09. It gives us a chance to clear up some of the misconceptions about our vast state. Indeed, Texas was once its own independent republic, and it is a fact that the three states of Connecticut, Delaware, and Rhode Island can all three fit inside our largest county. So, we hope you brought your good walking boots because you are in for a long hike.


Pineywoods by Joshua:

We live in the Pineywoods area of Texas. There are a lot of pine trees here. There are a lot of lakes, too. I like to go fishing at Lake of the Pines.barbedwire3

Gulf Coast by Brittany:

The Gulf Coast is next to the Gulf of Mexico. Mrs. Cranford went to Galveston to go on a cruise. Houston is a town in the Gulf Coast and it has the Johnson Space Center and the Houston Zoo. I would like to go there.barbedwire3

South Texas Plains by Adrian:

The southern border of Texas is Mexico. My family is Mexican but I cannot speak Spanish. The Alamo is in San Antonio. A lot of people go to see the Alamo.barbedwire3

Hill Country by Jennifer:

Hill Country is in the middle of Texas. The capital of Texas is in Hill Country. It is Austin.barbedwire3

Prairies and Lakes by Colton:

Dallas is a big city that is in this region. There is a lot to do there. You can go to a Dallas Cowboy football game or see a Texas Ranger baseball game. You can even go to Six Flags Over Texas and ride the roller coasters. If I went to Dallas, I would go to Texas Motor Speedway.barbedwire3

Big Bend Country by Brian:

If I went to West Texas, I would go to Big Bend National Park. In this region of Texas, there are mountains, deserts, and rivers. One of the largest cities in this region is El Paso.barbedwire3

Panhandle Plains by Erick:

This area is called the Panhandle because it looks just like the handle of a pan. There you can visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park. If you drive down the famous Route 66, you will see a lot of things.barbedwire3

Our school day in photos by Alex:

Every morning we start in the gym reading. If you are late you have to go to the office and see Mrs. Drennan. Our principal works in the office. Outside the office you can see the map of our blog visitors. When we go upstairs to our class we turn at the big Joe Roughneck. We go to SOI in the morning to exercise. We go to computer lab on Monday. We go to Music, PE, and Library too. We eat lunch in the cafeteria. Before we eat, we go outside to the playground. We mostly work in Mrs. Cranford’s room. Sometimes we work with Mrs. Odom.

  1. Hello C-O Connections students! Mrs. Cranford commented on my blog, so I decided to check your blog out!

    You have a great blog, and I really enjoy all of the facts about Texas. My parents lived in Texas, but I have never been there. Thanks for these great facts!

  2. Hi students,
    Thanks for the stories about your places. I have learned more about your place.
