Scandinavian - Scandinavian America - Immigration...- Classroom Presentation Scandinavian America The Scandinavian immigrants not only built new lives in the United States; they also built a new culture. As immigrants from Scandinavia flooded into sparsely populated areas of the U.S., they helped create a particularly Scandinavian way of life, melding the varied religious, culinary, literary, and linguistic traditions that they brought with them with those that they found in their new country. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, in the Great Lakes states, the northern Great Plains, and in enclaves scattered among northern U.S. cities, a visitor might imagine that he or she was traveling through a unique new nation—Scandinavian America. Language and Education As Scandinavian immigrants arrived in the U.S., they brought a diverse group of native languages with them, and they quickly established institutions to nurture and promote their linguistic heritage.

Life Before the Dinosaurs: Meganeura. Meganeura was a genus of huge griffinfly (a griffinfly is similar to a dragonfly, but much bigger), which lived during the Carboniferous Period. It had a wingspan of about 2-1/2 feet and probably ate animals such as other flying insects and probably some small amphibians and reptiles. Fossils of Meganeura have been found in North America, France, and Great Britain.
