Words Have Power

Students in Katie Stritmater's third grade class studied The Declaration of Independence and parts of The Constitution. While this learning was occuring, Katie and her students were also learning about Memorial Day and thinking a lot about the sacrifices US soldiers make.

In order to help students understand the power of words, like those found in these foundational US documents, Katie and her students each selected three word phrases that conveyed a personal message to US soldiers.

Katie and her students then made the film and with parental permission posted it on YouTube in order to celebrate and honor soldiers during Memorial Day.
