On the left and right side of an index card place identical stickers of U.S. symbols such as the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell, a U.S. flag, and others. (If you do not have stickers, you can copy and paste some of the symbols from Symbols of the U.S.A. or Flag Day Coloring Pages.) Cut each index card in half with a zig-zag line. Mix up the pieces and let children find the two symbols that match and line up the halves of the card.
