Presidents and US Symbols

George Washington's Hat
Start with a 9x12 piece of black construction paper. 

Fold in thirds.

Cut on the fold lines to get 3 rectangles.

Staple to make a triangle.

Add some stars!

 Statue of Liberty

After reading about the Statue of Liberty the children wrote three facts from the bubble map we created.  I got this great idea from Deanna Jump.

This is our bubble map.

We made bald eagles using our hands and a foot.  Another cute idea from Deanna Jump!

The students wrote about what they  would do if they were President.

 Here's a close up of the bald eagles.
I do this directed drawing activity of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln each year.  
I just love the 
personalities shown in the drawings.  Too cute!!!

We read some great stories about both of these Presidents and completed this venn diagram.

Here's all the students' drawings.

If I were President of the USA, I would...

This is always a fun writing activity!
