This is a great activity to use with your kiddos to help them better understand American symbols. Students choose a patritotic symbol they are interested in and "research" it. There is a graphic organizer to help keep their thoughts on track, as well as a page for a diagram of their symboll and a final writing page. These are great for hallway displays or class books.
