Whew! We have been having a blast learning all about the symbols of our country!
This first activity is from my friend Caitlin over at KindergartenSmiles. To give the kids an idea of just HOW big the Statue of Liberty is I cut out a nose that is 4.5 feet tall to match her dimensions. Then each kid stood next to it to measure themselves. Then we compared our height to hers! They loved it! They thought it was hilarious that not a single one of them was taller than her! This also his one of our math measurement standards - two birds with one stone!
We've also been learning about the Bald Eagle, Liberty Bell and the White House!
