The day classrooms are opened up to families, special student projects are shown off, and teachers exhaust themselves (because we want it all to be perfect)!
One of our third grade standards for social studies is learning about our patriotic symbols. I love teaching my students about it, but what I really love are the projects!
I teach them about the Liberty Bell,
the Bald Eagle and the Great Seal,
the Pledge of Allegiance,
the Statue of Liberty,
and the U.S. Flag.
I forgot to take pictures of the project my students do on Uncle Sam and the Star Spangled Banner.
They also write a flag poem and
created dioramas on Great Americans such as
Martin Luther King Jr.,
and Neil Armstrong.
I also cut out little Statue of Liberties and put the student's picture on them. The students have so much fun trying to figure out whose face is on each little statue.
We make a paper quilt about the things we have learned about in third grade,
create a model of the solar system (my very educated mother just served us nachos - kudos to anyone who can tell me what that stands for),
and write a report about one of the planets!
And of course, I always have a little welcoming plant outside my door
a plate of cookies for my special guests.
Thanks for buzzing by! Only three more weeks!!!!
summer --- summer --- summer
