Let's Celebrate America!

Students were introduced to the many symbols of America. Fireworks, The Statue of Liberty, The American Flag, Bald Eagles, and the list goes on. This was the perfect lesson for Labor Day! Believe it or not, students had no clue what the holiday was and their response was, "It is a day off from school!" NooOOOOooOOO!!!!!

We explored the history and story behind Labor Day and students created these celebrated works of art to honor the hard working families of America. 

Students used green sharpie's to outline Lady Liberty, green hues of crayons, and then oil pastels on black paper with some glitter for the background.
