Eureka!

Every state has an official motto or saying.  For example, Alaska’s motto is “North to the Future,” California’s is “Eureka,” and New Hampshire’s is “Live Free or Die.”  Many mottos are included on state license plates.  Every time you are carschooling, have your carschoolers look for state mottos on license plates.  Whenever they see a state motto on a license plate, they must say the name of the state and read the motto out loud for everyone to hear.  Some state mottos are in Latin.  For instance, Virginia’s is “Sic semper tyrannis,” which means “Thus always to tyrants.”  Hawaii’s motto is in the Hawaiian language, and Washington’s is a Native American word.  See how many your carschoolers can find as you travel.
