It begins in 1865 as a romantic idea, but ten years later Édouard Laboulaye’s dream catches fire. Sculptor Auguste Bartholdi gives the dream the form of a lady, holding a torch to “enlighten the world.” Engineers, plasterers, carpenters, and coppersmiths work together to turn the lady into a monument more than 100 feet tall. Doreen Rappaport’s poetic vignettes and Matt Tavares’s magnificent images remind us of the origins of a national symbol—and show that it took a lot of people to make the Lady.from Lady Liberty: A Biography at amazon.com
When my son was in elementary, he told me he wanted to learn about the Statue of Liberty. We found this book, Lady Liberty: A Biography by Doreen Rappaport, at the library, and he was off!
I created this lapbook for him to document (and review) the wealth of beautifully written information found inside the book, Lady Liberty: A Biography.
I hope you enjoy this Statue of Liberty lapbook with your student.
