04. The Deep South (cc)

This program looks at crafts historically linked to states in the deep South. Gator Bulletin Board - Alligators were almost hunted to extinction, but today they have made a comeback. Alligators have a short blunt round snout and are found in the southeast U.S., especially Florida, and in China. Believe it or not, they are afraid of humans when found in the wild. Gator Message Center - Alligators can be found in every fresh body of water from lakes to swamps and marshes. Fruit Slice Votive - Citrus fruits are a major part of the South's economy. The Spanish explorers brought the first plants. Today, citrus plants, such as oranges and grapefruits, are the most important group of all tropical and sub tropical plants. Mardi Gras Mask - Mardi Gras is a traditional holiday celebrated in many of the southern states of the USA. The most famous celebration takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana, originated by its French settlers. Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday, which is the day before Ash Wednesday, leading to the days of fasting before Easter Sunday in the Catholic religion. Sea Shell Frame - Did you know you're not really hearing the ocean when you put a shell up to your ear? What you hear is the constant noise around you that you tend to ignore. When you put anything against your ear, even a glass, it strengthens a certain group of frequencies of sound; so you hear just outside noise. Textured Shells - The size and shape of a shell determines the sounds you hear when you put it up to your ear. The shell is the hard outer cover secreted by the animal to protect itself. 06/09DE/CC Closed-Captioned PIA 30 min.
