The tulip tree, Liriodendron Tulipifera, was adopted as the state tree by an act of the Indiana General Assembly on March 3, 1931. Attaining average heights of 80'-120', it was once the monarch of the great forests that covered Indiana in pioneer times. The tulip tree is now used in landscaping for its shape, size, and distinctive bell-shaped yellow blossoms. Its white wood is used for furniture, toys, and musical instruments.
Order No. 6411

The female is a buff-brown with tinges of red on wings and tail. A year long resident of Indiana, the cardinal's rich and cheery voice may be heard in any season. They nest in thickets of brambles or low saplings. The eggs, 2 to 4, are pale bluish-green with brown markings.

At one time the National Road in Indiana, or what is now U.S. Highway 40, was the major thoroughfare across the state. Towns and businesses developed along the road as people moved west.
"This curriculum packet offers a look at the role the National Road played in Indiana's past and highlights important people and places vital to the road's history. Lessons will assist you in meeting the fourth grade social studies standards but can also be adapted for use at other grade levels. Throughout the lessons, primary source materials and documents will be used. It is our hope that the history of the National Road as presented here will enrich your students' understanding of this corridor of Indiana's past and inspire them to expand their understanding of Indiana's larger role in history."
