Make a Statue of Liberty Crown
In their social studies core curriculum, first graders learn about the basic idea of laws and government. This is not to say they’ll be reading you their Constitutional Rights (listen for that in high school), but they will definitely learn about the Fourth of July and timeless American ideals of freedom. Quite often, they’ll look at pictures of the Statue of Liberty, and if they live near enough, their class may very well pay a visit during the year.
Here’s a social studies craft that also encourages reading and vocabulary development. Snip, paint, draw, and enjoy!
What You Need:
- Two plain white 9” paper plates
- Gold paint
- Permanent marker
- Optional: Picture or book about the Statue of Liberty
