The History of Florida

It's history time!

 

Did you know that, at one point, Florida was a colony of Spain?

 

That's the real deal.

 

Way back on this day in the year 1819, Florida became part of the United States.

 

Some parts of Florida still have Spanish names, like Largo and Boca Raton, which means “rat mouth.”

 

The town of Islamorada means “purple island.”

 

In time, Florida would become the 27th state in the United States.

Now have your child answer a couple questions about the story:


  1. What happened on this day in the year 1819?  

  2. Was Florida part of the original United States? Were there any clues in the story?
