AHEF_The Great Seal

The purpose of this lesson is to introduce the American Patriotic symbols. The Great Seal was produced by the Founders to help unify the nation and demonstrate to the world the qualities of the nation.

The student will be able to identify elements and American patriotic symbols including Great Seal of the United States.

The Latin words on the Great Seal are one of the factors that express our intention as a nation to be one. The nation is composed of people from all over the world and residents of different states, but from these many the one people of the United States are formed.
