What is your state crustacean?

Geographers have noticed that people identify characteristics of their home regions that are distinctive. Together these characteristics define what geographers call a sense of place. In Maryland, the blue crab is just one of several symbols of which Marylanders are rightly proud.

Read about these symbols and then do some research on the symbols -- official or informal -- of your own state. Be sure to explore the rest of the Maryland Kids Page -- it teaches a lot of geography!
