The state of Virginia has many local legends, but first let's tell you when Virginia became a state.
Virginia became a state on June twenty- fifth 1780. Virginia's state bird is the cardinal and the state plant is the American dogwood.
Virginia' first Capital was Williamsburg, but that was from 1699 to 1780.Virginia's second Capital is Richmond. Virginia has a local legend that takes the two main versions. The book called Weird U.S by Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman explains the legend better. In Northern Virginia there is a bridge called the Bunnyman bridge that puts the two main versions to the test. One involves a teenager killing his family one Easter and then hanged himself off the bridge in a bunny costume. That version does seems less likely than the one about a mental patient who escaped from a bus that was transporting patients. He hid in the woods, and when people started to find rabbit carcasses around the bridge. When some teenagers were found gutted, hanging from the bridge, the local authorities put out a manhunt for the Bunnyman. Eventually they caught up with him, but just as they were about to apprehend him, he jumped in front of a train. So if you find yourself in Virginia or Northern Virginia, be sure to check out the Bunnyman bridge or see the historic Williamsburg. Moran Mark, Sceurman Mark, Weird U.S made in 2005
The advantages of homeschooling and why I think homeschooling is better than public schools.
Some of the advantages that homeschool has is that there is no bullying in homeschool, which is a major problem in almost every public schools. Another advantage of homeschooling is that if we start early, we finish early and public schools usually start in the middle of August and end in the end of May. Also another advantage of homeschooling is that we get sleep in to nine o clock, meanwhile other kids in public schools have to get earlier than we do. The last advantage of homeschooling that I will list is that there is one teacher that knows you already, while the teachers at the public schools has to get to know you.
And those are advantages of homeschooling and why I think homeschooling is better than the public schools.
