Description

This Library of Congress Student Discovery Set is here to put history into your hands. It brings together historical artifacts and one-of-a-kind documents from the collections of the Library of Congress. Interactive tools let you zoom in for close examination, draw to highlight interesting details, and make notes about what you discover. There’s no single right answer, only new discoveries to be made.

Six symbols – the Liberty Bell, the U.S. flag, the bald eagle, the national anthem, Uncle Sam, and the Statue of Liberty – have long been used to represent the ideas and values that make the nation unique. This set, which is especially appropriate for early grades, brings together posters, sheet music, cartoons, and photos of these symbols across the centuries.

This set is intended for open-ended primary source analysis by students. A Teacher’s Guide with background information, teaching ideas, and additional resources is available on the Library’s Web site for teachers, loc.gov/teachers.

What's New in Version 1.2

Added newspaper-related primary source analysis prompts.
