In our art class, your children learned about US Symbols; the American Flag, Liberty Bell and Statue of Liberty. We discussed the Presidential Election coming up in November, incorporated technology by watching an informative video on Brainpopjr.com, and played a memory game on the Activboard.
My second and third graders drew a Statue of Liberty surrounded by fireworks, and used both crayon and watercolor to add color to these fantastic drawings.
Kindergarten and first graders made cut paper American flags, (inspired a little by Jasper Johns) and then added a cut paper liberty bell colored with gold metallic crayon and brown construction paper stand. A lot of steps and a lot of work for little hands!
Doesn't that make you proud to be an American?
