Product Description
This mini-book can be adapted to fit lots of grades - just remember, it is "mini" so there is not a ton of room for students to write. In kindergarten and first grade, it can be used while teaching the US symbols and important figures. In upper-grades, it could be used as a study guide or an option on a learning menu. If you use Daily Five, it could be used to integrate Social Studies into your ELA block as an option during "Work On Writing."

There are a couple of options for using this mini-book, and I hope you find it useful to customize it to your grade level and state standards.

There are two page formats for you to pick from -
1. There is a page with the picture already it and room to write at the bottom.
OR
2. There is a page with an “x” (instead of the picture) and students add the picture as you learn about each symbol or figure.

Personally, I use option 2 in my kindergarten class. I print the pictures I need, cut them apart, and put them in a baggie for each child. As we introduce each new symbol or figure, students locate it in their baggie and add it to their page before writing a few key words in the mini-book.

Decide what works best for your students and your allotted time frame ☺

The following symbols and figures are included:
• Mount Rushmore
• Liberty Bell
• The White House
• President Obama
• George Washington
• Abraham Lincoln
• Washington Monument
• Lincoln Memorial*
• American Flag
• Statue of Liberty
• Bald Eagle

Pick the symbols relevant to your grade level and just print those. Each page will make three books.

HINT: I use a comb binder and bind the top of the book before I cut them apart to make three separate books. This saves me time. I find that binding it at the top and the “skinny” pages makes the book somewhat “new” to them and it’s a little more exciting for the kids! (You can staple it at the top if you don't have access to a comb binding machine.)


*Note: The Lincoln Memorial does not have clip art – I have my students do a rubbing of a real penny.

I hope you and your students find this resource useful!
