Monday Made It: A unit on Tennessee Symbols

Whoo hoo! It's not officially summer in my world, until Monday Made It starts! I love linking up and seeing all of the wonderful things people have made. It gets me so inspired to do DIYs and make things I've pinned off pinterest. ha One of the things on my summer "to do" list (that is never ending) was to put together a Tennessee Unit. I searched high and low and found NOTHING that fit the bill for what I was wanting. Especially, since we have adopted new Social Studies standards for the 2014-2015 school year. It also helped that I had a little nudge from a fellow teaching buddy to create something we could use. 
Here is what I came up with! A little state symbol informational booklet. This unit is differentiated and includes 4 different versions for you AND your students. Because, well, to be times I don't feel like cutting ALL of that stuff out and some of my kiddos have a hard enough time cutting a straight line AS IS. So - never fear - I have included a craft version (as shown), a coloring version where students will just color in blackline clip art, a drawing version for them to illustrate and label their symbols, and a writing version for higher level students who are able to recall facts and write about what they learned. #winning ha ha Makes me excited typing it. 
This unit is ready to go and includes everything you need to educate your students on the great state of Tennessee and it's symbols. It's discounted HALF PRICE through this week only. Hop on over to my TpT store and pick ya up a copy if you live in the volunteer state. For fun - - I'll give away a free copy to the first person to tell me who our governor is. Until then....
