Develop an understanding of citizenship and patriotism through a variety of experiences (e.g., appropriate behavior, sharing, taking turns, volunteering, being honest and demonstrating responsibility for materials and personal belongings).
Illustrate the rights, responsibilities, duties and privileges of a patriotic citizen using authentic situations (e.g., election, food drive, jury duty, etc.) and defend these actions as examples or non-examples of good citizenship.
Demonstrate patriotism by creating and implementing school/community service projects (e.g., litter cleanup, fundraisers for community groups, participation in community holiday parades, celebrations, services, etc.).
Give examples of symbols, icons and traditions of the United States, recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and participate in national patriotic celebrations (e.g., Martin Luther King Day, Presidents Day and Flag Day) and community service projects.
