License Plate Delight
When you're in the middle of a state, any state, choose half an hour in which you count the number of license plates from the state you are in and the number of plates you see from all the other states in the country, combined. How do you think the numbers will change when you are near the border of a state? What are the results when you try in a city?
Design a License Plate
You may have noticed that states sometimes change the designs of their license plates. A state may also change the “slogan” or words on its license plate.
Come up with your own slogans and designs for different states' license plates. When picking slogans, you can either be serious or goofy! The same goes for the design. On real license plates, often the colors will have something to do with the state's geography or its famous places, like green for a state that's known for all its forests. But this doesn't have to be true. You could draw a joke license plate with a picture of the motel you stayed at and a slogan like “The rain-soaked state,” if it was raining while you were there.
