Little School of Smith's

With the 4th of July just a few days away we decided to do a mini unit study on the Statue of Liberty. 🗽 My nephews were just in New York a few weeks ago and visited the Statue of Liberty so my daughter was very excited to learn all about it.

Check out all our fun activities we did:

We love Art for Kids Hub on YouTube! We found and enjoyed following their video on how to draw the Statue of Liberty.

We also did a science experiment on how the Statue of Liberty turned green! This experiment was super simple using just vinegar, salt, water and pennies. Click the link HERE for the full tutorial.

My favorite activity we did was making our own crown and torch out of paper plates! My daughter had a lot of fun making this and it turned out so cute!! For the full tutorial on how to make this click HERE.

Along with this mini unit of course we read a ton of great books. One of my daughters favorites was Liberty Rising: The Story of the Statue of Liberty by Pegi Dietz Shea because of this large fold out Statue of Liberty.

Check out these other great books about the Statue of Liberty:

What Is The Statue of Liberty by Joan Holub.

Building On A Dream: The Statue of Liberty by Ann Tatlock.

My Little Golden Book About the Statue of Liberty by Jen Arena.

Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers.

L Is For Liberty by Wendy Cheyette Lewiston.

We hope you enjoy these activities on the Statue of Liberty. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot! Check HERE if you would like to see more 4th of July crafts and activities for kids.

Have a great 4th of July! 🗽

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

– Emma Lazarus
