American Landmarks Reports by my First Graders

My class has been learning about American landmarks. The children selected a landmark that they wanted to learn more about. They were to find five facts about the landmark and a picture to show us. Once again they did a fantastic job. Alex A. reported on the White House. Alex T. told us about Yellowstone National Park, and we learned all about Old Faithful. Eli reported on the Lincoln Memorial and brought everyone a penny to look at. Evan reported on the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, and he brought a video that showed him at the Arch when he was 18 months old. I'Tavia told us about the Capitol. John Nic gave his report on Mount Rushmore. Kate reported on the Grand Canyon. Kendyl told us about Plymouth Rock. Laura Beth was out with the flu, but she later told us about the World War II Memorial. (I'll post more on her report later.) Lillie told us about the Washington Monument. Shelby C. reported on the Golden Gate Bridge. Shelby T. told us about the Alamo. We listened to a song about Davy Crockett after she gave her report. Starr reported on Pearl Harbor. Tyler B. told us about the Tomb of the Unknowns. Tyler C. gave his report on the Liberty Bell. Tyler G. told us about the Jefferson Memorial. We learned so much about these important landmarks along with the Statue of Liberty, our flag, and the bald eagle.
