Part of the first grade standards for Hawaii state social studies is to learn about American Symbols! My teaching team puts together these adorable books that I want to show you and provide some resources for where you can put together your own! I’ve included lots of pictures, lots of links to products and freebies that I use, and also a freebie I put together for you that you can download at the end of this post!
We start by singing a silly song I found on YouTube by KinderBlossoms. We then do a simple foldable in our Science and Social Studies Books.
For the Statue of Liberty, I did a directed drawing. I love this one from Art Projects for Kids and also this one that is just her head. The kids’ paintings turned out beautiful! The parents loved seeing this project at Open House!
For the Pledge of Allegiance, I use Lori’s freebie, just shrunk down to fit on the page.
There are a couple pages we made ourselves. That includes symbols for our state and school, the White House, the world, and an assessment.
You can download my freebie with a poem, interactive journal, crafts for the world, state symbols, and the White House, as well as an assessment for free on my Google Drive!
