Extractions: The most recent and chaotic chapter in Somali history began in the mid-1800s when Somalia was broken apart and governed by France, England and Italy. Playing on traditional clan rivalries, these European nations maintained control of Somalia until 1960. After a brief period of civilian government, the oppressive military dictatorship of Siad Barre took power in 1969. Allied with the Soviet Union, the new government began to oppress and terrorize opponents. After a futile and costly war with neighboring Ethiopia, Barre's government collapsed and he was exiled in 1991. As different factions grasped for power, the violence and hardship became unbearable. In 1992, the U.S. Army estimated that 25% of all Somali children under five had died of malnutrition. Many people fled to refugee camps in nearby African nations, and from there, to the U.S. and Europe.

Extractions: Abbreviation: MN Minnesota's name comes from the Dakota (Sioux) word for the Minnesota River's "sky-tinted waters." In 1858, Minnesota became the 32nd state. Minnesota is an important producer of agricultural and manufactured goods. The state's history is the story of the development of its natural resources. The fur-bearing animals of the forests first attracted fur traders. Next, the fertile soil brought farmers, who poured into the region from the Eastern States and from Europe. The thick forests of tall pines attracted lumberjacks from Maine, Michigan and Wisconsin. Minnesota's scenic beauty, sparkling lakes and deep pine woods make it a vacation wonderland. Campers, canoeists and hikers can explore its vast northern wilderness areas. Der Name Minnesota stammt von der Bezeichnung der Dakota (Sioux) Indianer für den Minnesota Fluss - "den Himmel reflektierendes Wasser" - ab. 1858 wurde Minnesota der 32. Staat. Minnesota

He wears his Green Bay Packers jersey to school with obsessive regularity. Normally, this wouldn't be a big problem, but Rocky attends school in Minnesota, where students are expected to be good little Minnesota Vikings fans from as early as fourth grade.

Gridiron Geography isn't just for Minnesotans; it's available in any city or region that boasts an NFL team: Indianapolis, Kansas City, Oakland, etc. You'd know all the cities if you had worked through the G.G. curriculum, because that's its purpose, to teach kids the geography of NFL team cities.
