Presidential medal of freedom

 

"What is an example of your elementary curriculum?" 


Our Presidential Medal of Freedom unit, targeted for Grade 3, is anchored in an illustrated story about eight recipients of the medal. These short biographies contextualize various identities within the ideals of American democracy and heroic endeavors.

The primary sources (original documents and objects created during the time period under study) are the President's comments, written and spoken, during the ceremony.

Students also learn about the symbols in the medal and their meaning, and the interactive game "Who Am I?" reinforces learning while providing extended learning about each recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom featured in the unit.
