My Favorite American Monument. Kindergarten Activity. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
For this kindergarten classroom activity, students are asked to pretend they have just won a trip to four historical sites: (1) Lincoln Memorial; (2) Mount Rushmore; (3) White House; and (4) Statue of Liberty. The activity instructs the students to keep a journal of the trip (taken via the Internet) so that a presentation can be given to the class about the favorite monument. A 4-day detailed procedure for implementing the activity is provided for the teacher. Five Internet resources are provided. The unit offers learning advice for students and a conclusion. It concludes with notes for the teacher about grade level, content standards, lesson purpose and goals, information literacy, length of time for class periods, materials needed, set up and management of the lesson, an introduction to the activity, interdisciplinary connections and additional resources.
