Day 175 - Traveling to American Symbols! - Mrs. Parnell - Pine Glen Kindergarten

This post first appeared on Mrs. Parnell's Blog 

Today was amazing! The kindergartners have been learning about American Symbols and their locations in the United States. We have done research, read books, created our own books.  Last week we made our own passports and travel suitcases to prepare us for our TRIP across the giant North American map. This morning the students we greeted by their groups travel agent and they were escorted to each site where a tour guide introduced the students to each American Symbol, stamped their passport and quizzed the students on their knowledge of each symbol. After visiting each site the students were given a souvenir to help the students remember each site! There were many destinations to visit.  Off the coast of Maryland was a British warship to help us learn about the war of 1812 and the inspiration and perspective of Francis Scott Key's Star Spangled Banner.  Students used telescopes to look back at the coast to spot to Ft. McHenry. At the US / Canadian border student learned about Niagara Falls and watched a brief video of the falls. On the western part of the map students learned about the American Bald Eagle in Alaska, watched a volcano erupt in Hawaii and visited the Golden Gate Bridge in California. Students also had the opportunity to visit Mt. Rushmore, see Bison in Yellowstone National Park, stop by the Grand Canyon and see some alligators in the Everglades! Based on what we saw and heard the students doing this morning, the students are becoming American Symbol experts. Great work kindergartners! 

THANK YOU to all the parents and Burlington Public Schools staff who took the time to help us with this special project. We couldn't have done made it work without your help!
