Greetings from Pittsburgh!

Hello class! Well, it's time for Proud Panther to start his trip home to Jacksonville. Before he got ready to leave, I wanted to show him my new city. This is a view of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from a Mt. Washington lookout. Pittsburgh was founded in 1758. It was known as the Steel City for all of its steel mills. It has three rivers that run right through downtown. The Allegheny River and the Monongahela River merge to form the Ohio River. Pittsburgh is the home of several sports teams: Steelers (football), Pirates (baseball), and Penguins (hockey). It is also the home of Heinz Ketchup! Pittsburgh sits in the Allegheny Mountains (part of the Appalachian Mountain Range). I hope you all have enjoyed the adventures of Proud Panther and I through England, Wales, Mexico, and Pittsburgh. I also hope you learned lots of fun facts along the way! Enjoy your last day of school and have a great summer!! Good luck next year! I miss you all very much!

Me and Proud Panther

I absolutely LOVE your proud panther! I would love to get a manatee and take him along with me on my journeys to share with my class on my blog!
