1st Grade Project USA

Project USA highlights some of our national treasures as well as our patriotic pride in a project-based learning assignment. It serves as a wonderful research project, a chance to practice delivering a speech, and put on a presentation for the parents. Each student in First Grade is assigned a landmark and they become the expert on it. They create a posted and prepare a speech to delivery on presentation day. It is a great way to show the wonderful growth our First Graders have made this year. It is the gateway to our study of our country, it’s symbols and has a focus on maps.
