In conjunction with the second grade immigration unit, students learned about the Statue of Liberty. I introduced the designer, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and engineer/architect Gustave Eiffel. We talked about symbolism and how the Statue of Liberty symbolized freedom to Ellis Island immigrants. We played a game where students had to guess a book by it's symbol, try to guess the example below! Students then filled out a worksheet to help them come up with an object and book that they felt symbolized them. Finally, they drew themselves with their symbols as the Statue of Liberty and created a cityscape background using printmaking techniques.
