Patriotic Symbols

This week we are starting a study of patriotic symbols and famous Americans. It will help us understand a little bit more about what it means to be a good citizen of our country. This will be a fairly short (3 weeks) but exciting study. First graders are always fascinated by the symbols of our country so I am sure that you will hear all about it at the dinner table for the next few weeks. Below are just a few of the books that we will have in our classroom to read and to use as resources for our research - more are on the way.

Why study this? 
We study patriotic symbols and famous Americans as way to begin to learn about how to be an active, responsible citizen of our country. The official outcomes/standards for this study are below:

Evaluate the roles, rights, and responsibilities of citizenship

Symbols, songs, holidays, traditions, places, and people help to provide identity for the community and nation. 

Citizens exercise the rights and obligations of citizenship at the local or wider community level by showing interest and being involved.
