Kids love learning about their country! One of my favorite ways to engage students in meaningful learning about their country is by teaching them about several of our American symbols. My students always enjoy showcasing their knowledge about these symbols as they put together an attractive report. They are always so proud to share their final projects with their families!

This pack includes the following symbols:


*Statue of Liberty

*Bald Eagle

*Liberty Bell

*Mount Rushmore

*White House

The materials were designed to be used as a research project for young learners. After conducting whole group research, your students can use the gathered information to write paragraphs about the included symbols. There is a craftivity to go with each symbol.

The following materials are included in this pack:

*Suggestions for Use/Publishing

*Pledge of Allegiance (students copy the Pledge of Allegiance)

*Report Covers

*Table of Contents for completed research project

*Craftivities for each of the included symbols

*Circle Maps for all included symbols

*Fact Organizers for all included symbols (one to accommodate 3 facts, another to accommodate 5 facts)

*Rough Draft Organizers for all included symbols (one to accommodate 3 details, and another to accommodate 5 details)

*Writing Paper for all included symbols (two versions of lined paper included: one with handwriting lines and one with plain lines)

*Additional Pages of lined paper (two versions included: one with handwriting lines and one with plain lines)

*America Acrostic

Use some, or all of the components. Either way, the finished report is sure to be a keepsake!

Be sure to check out the preview file!
