Learning Objective

1. Students will learn about U.S national monuments and memorials, as well as the Americans who they honor. 2. They will explore other Americans who do not have a monument and write a persuasive writing piece on why this person deserves a monument.


This activity was inspired my recent (and very first) visit to Washington D.C. As a retired teacher as well as  a fan of history and travel, I was wonderfully overwhelmed by seeing our nation’s capital and all of the beautiful monuments, memorials and fascinating museums. They inspired this activity that combines history, language arts, creativity and critical thinking. Students will learn about who our nation's monuments honor, and then choose someone who does not have a national monument, creating a persuasive essay or presentation on why this person needs a monument. In addition, they will have to opportunity to design and build a model of the monument!
