I am so excited to share this U.S. Symbols Fact Pack Copywork set with you! I published the first set of Fact Pack Copywork sets a year ago, and I realized I haven’t added to it IN A YEAR!
That’s no good because I have several sets almost finished, so I will try to publish those as soon as the 2021-2022 Daily Calendar Notebook is ready.
I do not like sharing the next sets that I’m working on and then not making them available.
Moving on to this set of Fact Pack copywork …
I firmly believe that my children need a body of knowledge from which to work. Also, we are Patriotic Americans and faithfully teach our children about the freedom that America offers and how hard-fought this freedom was won and still maintained.
One of the many ways we can instill those principles is through intentional copywork. Copywork has a whole host of benefits, and this set of U.S. Symbols exposes my young ones to common American symbols.

U.S. Symbols Fact Pack in Print and Cursive
These copywork packets are set up with 2 different levels in both print and cursive. Note that the copywork sentences are the same in each version.
→ In Level 1, words and phrases are modeled on primary lines with space immediately below for the student to practice. Includes 30 pages.
→ In Level 2, words and sentences are modeled at the top of the page in a smaller font, and space is provided at the bottom for students to practice. Includes 30 pages.
This set features 9 common American symbols with multiple facts about each symbol.
For example, the pages about The Great Seal include the following facts:
1.) The Great Seal of the United States is the official coat of arms for the U.S. The seal is used on official documents.
2.) The Great Seal is a round piece of metal with designs on both sides. It was approved by Congress in 1782.
3.) The Great Seal features a bald eagle. It holds an olive branch in one talon symbolizing peace. The other talon holds arrows of war.
4.) The Great Seal has the original U.S. motto: E pluribus unum. It is a Latin phrase that means “one out of many.”
The following copywork pages are included:
- American Flag – 6 pages
- Great Seal (front side only) – 4 pages
- American Bald Eagle – 2 pages
- The Liberty Bell – 3 pages
- The White House – 4 pages
- Mount Rushmore – 3 pages
- The Lincoln Memorial – 3 pages

I’ve included a few extra learning or extension ideas if you would like to take learning these ideas further in your homeschool or classroom.
You will also see some quick ideas to guide the grammar portion of this copywork packet. Just spending 2-4 minutes on the grammar is very helpful reinforcement to young ages!
This set pairs beautifully with the set of U.S. Symbols Posters with Facts, as the facts are pulled straight from this copywork packet.
