Teaching American Symbols {FREEBIE!}

The students have loved becoming American Symbol experts this week!

We have read many great books, collected facts, shared our background knowledge, created symbol art and writing, made an American flag for our cooking activity this week, checked on the Bald Eagle cam,... and more! 

Check out the Bald Eagle live nest came here:

We used this site to collect more information on bald eagles:

Here is the American flag we created while Cooking with Mrs. Raymore:

Some of our Symbol art:

On Friday we created a U.S. Symbol Quilt that is absolutely beautiful. The students REALLY LOVED creating this during social studies... and begged me to make extra copies at lunch so they could make more in the afternoon! :)

We worked in groups using collections of books and our anchor charts to create our own facts. 


I have created this simple freebie if you'd like to create a quilt with your class. You could also use it to create a class book.
