This worksheet, called 'Holidays and Celebrations Worksheet: Uncle Sam Patterns', was originally introduced by Scholastic and can also be downloaded from their website for free. The worksheet is great for using in classes immediately preceding or following Independece Day as it provides three patterns for cutting and coloring: Uncle Sam Character, Uncle Sam Beard Pattern and Uncle Sam Hat. The detailed instructions on how to cut, fold and fit the patterns are listed with each pattern. Involve kids in preparing these Independence Day symbols each for themselves, so that they can use them as table decoration and wearable items in classes dedicated to celebrating and getting informed about Independence Day. Provide students with the origin of the symbols, or make them do some topic-related research, in advance, and present it in class, - to make the lesson informative and fun at the same time!
