American Symbols

On September 28th, 3rd grade held a Gallery Walk to celebrate all they had learned about government and American symbols. Students in both classrooms led their parents and family members around the room to present what they had done over the unit. Throughout the morning, the third graders retold stories, presented posters, sang chants, and even dressed up as Lady Liberty!


In the back of Ms. Recendez’s room, students proudly displayed posters about national symbols. During the unit, students researched different American symbols in small groups, including the bald eagle, American flag, and the United States Seal. Then, each group created a poster for their symbol in order to share their expertise with their classmates and parents.


Students in Ms. Luttrell’s class showed off images of a bald eagle in front of an American flag. To create their art, students first sketched in pencil, then traced in marker, and finally painted using watercolors.

Before sending off their parents, the third graders gathered together to sing, “It’s a Grand Old Flag.” Thank you to all of the parents and family members who made the morning special!
