Another busy week – we’re just packin’ in all we can before the end of the year!
We finished up our US Symbols Unit by discussing the Liberty Bell. We followed up the discussion with torn art bells. To make it a bit easier, I photocopied the outline of the bell and they filled it in. I love how they turned out!
Next up…Mount Rushmore!To extend our chat about Mt. Rushmore, the students made their very own landmark. The only guideline for this project was that they had to choose four people who were either important to them or to our country. Then, they named their landmark.

To finish up this unit, we watched the Pups of Liberty: The Boston Tea-Bone Party. This is a super cute kid-friendly explanation of the Boston Tea Party. This DVD was sent to me free from Izzit. Check ’em out to grab your own!
