Starting with the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine quarter, students will recognize national anthems and identify musical instruments. Students will demonstrate an understanding of creating an original song and designing a class coin.
Starting with the Acadia National Park quarter, the students will access the park's website to understand tide pool communities and the plants and animals that live in them. After viewing the website's view of Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, the students will imagine the area of the rocks, ocean, and tide pools. They will learn more through videos and texts, then demonstrate their knowledge through class discussions, diagrams, worksheets, and illustrations.
