Idea for Elem. School Sign replacing the word Democracy with Republic.Submitted by Jack Scissor on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 13:14
My daughter attends a k-4 elementary school, public of course. In their library they have a copy of the pledge of allegiance with the words democracy cut out of craft paper about 18 inches long. I spoke with the Librarian and she gave me the ok to replace the word democracy. I have no problem going with the word REPUBLIC, but since this is an opportunity to teach, albeit k-4 graders, do any of you have any ideas that you could share. here are mine.
The word Republic with a brief explanation f the difference between democracy and a republic. With a brief blurb about the founding fathers abhorring anything like a pledge of allegiance, or the word Republic with info written inside the letters. Just the word Republic or maybe For the Republic For Liberty.
Thanks in advance.
