Product Description

Have your students work in collaborative groups to become experts on one U.S. Symbol. Your students will then put their presentation skills to work as they teach the class all they've learned!

This resource is great for any age group, from 1st grade to 5th grade and beyond! Expectations are easily adapted for any age group. In this pack, you will find research sheets and resources for 10 different symbols or landmarks. I’ve included 3 different types of recording sheets so that you can choose the one that best fits your needs. Also included is a "group norms" page for each different group where students will establish their group rules.

Symbols/Landmarks included: 
Statue of Liberty
American Flag
Bald Eagle
Liberty Bell
Mount Rushmore
White House
Star Spangled Banner
Pledge of Allegiance
Great Seal
Washington Monument

If you like to put your students in charge, this is the perfect resource for you! Your students will work collaboratively with a small group to become an expert on one symbol or landmark and present their research to the class. Not only will they learn the content, but also collaboration and teamwork. Students can get as creative as they want!
