American Symbols


American Symbols are one of my FAVORITE units to teach.  There is just something about teaching kids about our history that fills me up with pride.  I think it is so important for kids to know about some of the unique statues and symbols that symbolize freedom, strength, and hope.
I LOVE seeing some of the projects from my America unit in other people's classrooms and the display above and below took my breath away.  These pics were found on the Rainbows Within Reach blog and they are pictures of the projects from my America unit.  I LOVE how they turned out.


The flags are my favorite and they go perfectly with the book and song,  Red, White and Blue by Debbie Clement.

Below our a few more pics from my America unit that can be found on TPT.
Note:  I'm in the process of updating the unit and the price will probably go up to $12.  so if you are interested you might want to grab it while it's $8.50  












P.S. I also have a new Chit Chat American Symbols unit out.  You can check it out below.

  2. I love these ideas! When do you have the time to complete all of the art projects? I have only 15-20 minutes for social studies/science, and it takes some of my kiddos forever to complete a project.

    1. I LOVE doing art work with them because if I take the time (usually about 15 minutes) to have them make a product their writing is SO much better!

    1. I found the books for March on your FB page. Thanks so much. Do you have any idea of the ones for April? Two of the ones for March are on backorder on Amazon. I'd like to try to get April's before they run out. Thanks again for all your wonderful work!
