Teachers and students will enjoy experiencing through drawings and key words all of America's great symbols. The drawings will motivate students to color while learning the importance of these symbols. In addition to American symbols, students explore facts about the U.S. Flag, the 3 Charters of Freedom, National Holidays, Pres. Lincoln, Civil Rights leader M.L. King, Jr., patriotic songs, and a short essay titled "What is an American." Included is a list of 30 learning objectives, an assessment, an answer key, an appendix with a patriotic crossword, word searches, poems, and directions on how to make a magical Betsy Ross star with one snip of the scissors. The unit concludes with a full page bibliography of high interest supplementary materials. This is a complete unit so feel free to select the parts that interest you and fit your schedule. Enjoy!
