Here's a slide show to help you start off your unit about America. It shows 14 different United States symbols plus a caption with interesting facts about each symbol.
After viewing this slide show, students make an American Symbols themed booklet as a teacher directed or independent activity. Student booklet corresponds to captions from 9 slides. Students fill in the missing words on the booklet's captions by watching the slide show. Clip art is included for students to color and match to the appropriate caption.
Be sure to check out the preview to get a glimpse of all the slides.
Symbols included: Bald Eagle, Liberty Bell, Lincoln Memorial, Mount Rushmore, oak tree, rose, Statue of Liberty, US Constitution, US flag, US motto, Washington Monument, and White House
