Lady Liberty Visits Kindergarten
Although older grades travel the world in their globalization lessons, kindergarten classes have their roots firmly planted in the U.S.A. During the week of Sept. 22, kindergarteners learned about our country’s most famous gift, the Statue of Liberty.
Taking a “field trip of the imagination”, our students crossed New York Harbor by ferry along with a girl named Olivia, who told us all about “Liberty Enlightening the World” as she is officially known. Next they read a fictitious account of the day Lady Liberty became bored and decided to travel from sea to shining sea and only letters from the children of New York could entice her to return home.
After learning why the Statue of Liberty is no longer a shiny copper color, their culminating project was to create a beautiful turquoise Liberty crown of their own. Lady Liberty looked great all over Sandy Ridge!
