After listening to your podcast about Iowa I am going to pack my bags and I am going to think about staying. I can't imagine being in a state where 95% of the land is used for farming. I can really visualize those corn fields.
Wonderful research, writing and recording!

Emilee- well done!
Iowa sounds so beautiful and you gave your listeners some wonderful options.

I'm torn between your description of Iowa and Margaret's Indiana

Both of you are great salespersons! I can't wait to hear from others in your class

Emilee, what a wonderful job you did! Great information presented in a very convincing manner. I agree with Mrs. Cook you did a great job researching, writing, and recording. I even loved your music and they way it flowed. What was most appealing to me was Lake Red Rock. I can just picture myself enjoying a picnic with a wonderful view. I would also love to see the prairie there. I understand it is beautiful. I think Iowa is certainly a place I would love to visit.

Your podcast was the BEST.You sure do have a great voice to listen to.Working with you in Social Studies together made me not so scared because you were doing it to and I didn't feel so alone with what I was doing.

Dear Emilee,
I agree with most of your facts. I also studied Iowa for my state project . If someone did not know that much about Iowa he would learn a lot from your pod cast. Great job! I hope you get to see my brochure.

WOW! Emilee...I can't even speak!

That was so nice.

I love how you spoke so clearly and I love how you put so much infomation in only about a two min. podcast.

I can't belive that there is only 30 inches of rain and only 3 feet of snow per year. My mom would love that!

Well. I can see you on a reporting station some day.
