Mississippi River

Standard

Good Morning!

Welcome to the Mighty Mississippi.  Mississippi is the name of a state, but it is also the name of a major river in the United States. The Mississippi river runs through the state of Minnesota and some of you may have traveled near it before!  The Mississippi River lies in the following ten US states: Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. It is the longest river in America.  On the map we made yesterday, label and draw the Mississippi River.
