As part of our social studies unit about government the 2nd grade students studied US symbols. I have a variety of books about US symbols at a variety of reading levels. Small groups of students each read about 4 symbols including Mt. Rushmore, the flag, Statue of Liberty, Liberty Bell, the bald eagle, and the Washington Monument. Each group chose 1 symbol to create a PSA about. Their PSA had to include what the symbol represented as well as 3 or more facts about it. They had a choice of using Drawing Pad, Strip Design, Popplet, Pic Collage, Educreations, and Story Buddy.
