Our country is filled with incredibly talented teachers and students! See how they are using the Adventures of Rush Revere Series! These great ideas may work well with your class!
Creative way to use Book 1!
After reading Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, teachers have a feast just like the first Thanksgiving. Students in the class dress up like notable figures from our early history and read lines from the book to the group.
Book 2 and all books!
A super classroom in Florida wrote in to tell us they had a reading competition after reading Rush Revere and the First Patriots. The girls in the class challenged the boys in the class to see who knew more! The winner got special recognition, bragging rights, and a cool prize!
Genius tech idea for Book 3!
A wonderful teacher named Mr. Ken in Idaho loves to use the series in his afterschool program. He said it is a great way for students to have fun while still learning. After reading Rush Revere and the American Revolution, Mr. Ken had his class use the Scratch Jr. coding software to recreate scenes from the book. How cool is that? A brilliant combination of old vs. new!
Travel with Book 4!
We were so thrilled to see these pictures. After reading Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner, an adventurous class made a cut out of Rush Revere and Liberty to take ‘on location’. The students had so much fun traveling around to special locations and taking pictures with their Rush Revere and Liberty cut out. After they got back, they showed the rest of the class the pictures and told everyone a little bit about their favorite part of the book.
Wax Museum and the Presidency!
We love to see superb creativity and talent on full display. One of our special teachers had an idea to create a Wax Museum. After reading Rush Revere and the Presidency, students in her class dressed up as their favorite characters. As people walked by, a young George Washington and Abigail Adams explained who they were and what their role was in history. What a fantastic way to make our patriots relatable while having fun learning more about them.
Mr. Ken P. Marsing, Idaho
We are proud to announce our Teacher of the Month, Mr. Ken P. He is exceptional in every way and very devoted to the futures of his students.
Mr. Ken P. is the director of two afterschool programs in Marsing, Idaho. Through fun and educational activities Mr. P has engaged the young patriots to now love the Rush Revere Series, American history, and reading! He creates hands-on activities and encourages the students to think beyond the classroom back to important historical events that they read about. One of his third grade students was so inspired she decided to set up a Thanksgiving dinner party! Mr. P tells us that he has seen great progress in the students’ vocabulary and reading skills in a very short time. He knows if the students can understand and relate to our founding they will have an even greater appreciation of what it means to be an American. We are so impressed by the impact he is having. Bravo to you!
