Her Right Foot tells a secondhand account of how the Statue of Liberty came to
be and what she represents. Students take a bite out of “The Big Apple” to learn
about Lady Liberty’s home and discover the many facets that make the city so
unique. This module invites exploration of map reading, structural components
of poetry and drama, readers’ theatre, and collage. The lessons will transport
students on a learning journey like no other to explore freedom, the chains that
bind, and our own personal call to action.
