The Statue of Liberty is known around the world as a symbol of freedom, but she is even more! Knowing more about several individual symbols found on Lady Liberty can help to better understand her symbolism. Knowing more about the people behind her creation can help to better appreciate the artistry behind the statue. Knowing more about her interior framework can help to marvel at the engineering that has kept the Statue of Liberty standing strong for over 125 years.
"Celebrating a Symbol" is a self-guided, curriculum-based program for students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade.
