American Symbols

American Symbols is one on of my FAVORITE units to teach. 

It must be yours too because 

over 7,000 teachers have purchased this unit

from Teachers Pay Teachers

because it meets the Common Core Standards for

Informational Reading with rigor and  

most importantly classroom joy in reading!


American Symbols Unit by Teacher to the Core includes everything you need



My students LOVED this, and I got 4 parent notes telling me how

 much they enjoyed hearing their child talk informatively and

passionately about Social Studies.

One parent said that their child doesn't talk much at the dinner

table, and now he won't stop talking about school and symbols!

I think it's because the unit is written to be 

kid friendly and engaging!

    1. Rosanna, you would buy them from Teachers Pay Teachers. Then you would download them at home or at school and print them. I am so glad that you like this.
