Our Statue of Liberty lesson plan introduces students to the Statue of Liberty and its significance to the United States today, and the past. The history of the statue is included, as well as other important and interesting facts. Many students may have seen photos or images of the statue but may be unaware of its history, its construction, and other information about it. During this lesson, students are asked to color in the Statue of Liberty and write a word for each of the letters from the word FREEDOM related to something they do that makes them feel free. Students are also asked to match the terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and describe the Statue of Liberty and its significance and the symbolism as it relates to the world today and in the past.
