This is a booklet I have designed to be used by the teacher and/or students in order to enhance instruction for a unit on different symbols of the United States. I have used this unit to help teach that Americans have a variety of symbols that remind us of the freedom we have as citizens of this country.
Each US symbol presented in the unit has its own page with illustrations and photos to help with the historical information provided. Pertinent vocabulary is in bold print and highlighted on each page. The file also corresponds to a unit test I have developed to assess students on each person from the booklet. I also have a vocabulary quiz available and am developing a PowerPoint presentation to accompany the unit as well.
I have used this booklet to correspond/supplement various educational videos found through such resources as BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr., and YouTube.
