This packet will help you take your students on a virtual field trip across the United States. Students will focus on 7 symbols of America, as they record facts in a travel log, collect and make souvenirs and learn about our nation’s past.
Students will travel to…
New York City, NY
St. Louis, MO
Symbols of focus are the American Flag, Liberty Bell, Statue of Liberty, White House, Gateway Arch, Mount Rushmore and the Bald Eagle.
Within the packet, I provide many researched and resourceful links that you can access to fully engage your students in the learning process.
This unit is also centered on the Second Grade Common Core Writing Standards, and provides students with practice in all the domains.
***This unit is best put to use in classrooms that have access to Smart Boards, or other projection type devices. You’ll need to provide the photos and sounds to make it more realistic, but I have put together a package that contains tickets and passes to all the attractions.
