Are you teaching your young learners about US Symbols? This file has four one-page passages of informative text about each of four US symbols: the American flag, the Statue of Liberty, the Bald Eagle, and the Liberty Bell. There are also templates for three activities to do with your students during this unit: a Mystery Picture flag of the United States, a beautiful template for a fabulous bald eagle puppet, and an awesome template for a Statue of Liberty crown for each student. These activities will engage learners in a study of US Symbols and also provide them with much needed text to practice their early literacy skills. This small unit is a favorite in my 1st grade classroom!
