US Symbols

Enjoy learning about American Symbols with your class.
It fits in with a lesson on US Presidents.

There is informational text on:
Liberty Bell
Statue of Liberty
Bald Eagle
Mount Rushmore
Lincoln Memorial
Washington Monument
White House
American Flag

What I like best are the activities that follow.
They are creative and encourage students to think outside the box.
Who would you add to Mt. Rushmore?
What might a modern Statue of Liberty wear?

Vocabulary is added as well as word work and writing.
There is an eagle and a liberty bell craft.

Presidents' Day

February is always perfect for bringing in some history and take a look at today and our presidents.

This packet has two cute page toppers to add to student writing for display.

Here are some samples of vocabulary although there are more that accompany the section on George Washington and the section on presidents.

Here are samples on Abe but again there are two other sections with similar activities.
Informational text includes:  single page, mini book, poem, close read.

Pages are included for recording information and taking a closer look.
Two of my favorites are the word study and the penny flip. (there is a quarter flip for Washington)

Activities include compare and contrast for the two presidents Washington and Lincoln. 
There is a background page on Donald Trump and I plan to make some comparisons using him also.

As an extra there is a "literature" story included where students will look at a teacher/president.
So much fun!!

Finally pages are available to guide students through research on a specific president.
Final reporting pages are included as well!

I absolutely LOVE this partner activity for the class.
It is a great way to engage students and inform them about New Year.

The cootie catcher comes in black and white or color.
Just print, fold and go!

If you want something more elaborate this packet is filled with information on Chinese and American New Year celebrations.
