American Symbols Part II

We had a wonderful time learning about the symbols of America.  Here is a peek at some of our learning.

Patriotic Hearts  After learning about the colors of our flag, students weaved these hearts.  I added their photo to the star.

Liberty Crowns  This is one of my favorite crafts.  To make, I draw the crown onto a 18x12 construction paper and cut.


 Drawing Lady Liberty With the help of this You Tube video, I was able to teach my students how to draw the Statue of Liberty.  I originally saw this here and here.


Bald Eagles We completed this shared writing to go along with our art from Mrs. Jump's unit.

I loved how patriotic our classroom looked.


Happy Learning and Teaching!

  2. Those eagles are darling! Did they come with the unit from Deanna Jump? If not, where can I get them?

  3. Hello Mrs. Parker -

    You do such amazing stuff; that's why I'm passing along the One Lovely Blog award. Come on by the Corner to grab the graphic and pass it along if you're able. Thanks for the continued inspiration.
