We spent a lot of time this week learning about our past presidents and American symbols. We made box books about U.S. symbols.
Liberty Bell Box Books
Bald Eagle Box Books
Students chose a U.S. symbol to write about. We had the U.S. Flag, Liberty Bell, Statue of Liberty, Bald Eagle, and The White House represented.
We also did some activities from Traci Clausen's President's Day Unit. The kids made themselves look like George Washington, did an Abraham Lincoln craft, and tucked a book about U.S. symbols in his hat.
I thought these were hysterical!
