Proud to be an American! We, as teachers, need to nurture that pride! This product is a 12 page mini book which includes the following patriotic symbols...
Statue of Liberty
There is a page with a brief history of our flag, one that shares what each color on the flag represents, another that discusses how to be respectful of the flag, and a page with the words for the Pledge of Allegiance. After learning about the above symbols the children can illustrate what America means to them and what message their picture would send. A colorful back page finishes the mini book.
The above American symbols are to be identified by second graders as well as their meaning for the Social Studies Common Core. Common Core also states students should demonstrate proper flag etiquette while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
