Dear Reader,

Sometimes questions come in waves, and this week I had
three readers inquire about the “Software Secrets Exposed”
book I wrote about in February. Must have something to do
with summer. If you are looking for a productive summer
project, here are some ideas:

1) Become a software publisher with tips learned in “Software
Secrets Exposed

2) Add games to your organization’s website with tools revealed
in “How to Add Games to Your Site

3) Forget productive. Relax. Watch DVDs all day.
Try free Netflix trial.

Today’s Statue of Liberty topic is accompanied by the following games:

Lady Liberty Concentration
Statue of Liberty Scrambler
Statue of Liberty Jigsaw

Statue of Liberty

http://www.surfnetkids.com/statueofliberty.htm

The copper lady dressed in robes that stands at the entrance to New York harbor is one of the largest statues ever built. Her complete name is Liberty Enlightening the World.



National Park Service: Meet the People

http://www.nps.gov/stli/teachercorner/page4.html

****

Meet the People and Symbols of Liberty (part of the National Park Service’s Teacher Corner) are called “Pre-Visit Classroom Activities,” but are valuable whether you are able to visit Lady Liberty or not. They consist of multiple-choice quizzes, and suggestions for further research and discussion. Another hidden educational goodie is the printable “Ellis Island Pre-Visit” in Adobe Acrobat format ( http://www.nps.gov/stli/activity/pre.pdf ).



NYCTourist.com: Statue of Liberty Photo Tour

http://www.nyctourist.com/liberty1.htm

****

“Join us on this Photo Tour as we go from lower Manhattan to Liberty’s crown! We begin here in Battery Park on the tip of Manhattan at this circular fortress called Castle Clinton.” Upon completion of the five- page tour, check out the other twenty-four virtual New York tours by following the Photo Tour Menu link at the bottom of the last page of the Statue of Liberty Tour.



PaperToys.com: Statue of Liberty Paper Cutout

http://papertoys.com/statue.htm

*****

This paper cutout of the Statue of Liberty was an unexpected find! Print, color, cut, fold and glue to create your own three-dimensional Statue of Liberty. To access dozens more (including the Empire State Building and World Trade Center), return to the front page by deleting everything to the right of the slash in the address. Just for parents: scroll down to the bottom of the front page for your free copy of the downloadable “22 Fun Activities for Kids – How to Keep Your Children Occupied and Out of Your Hair for Days!”



Travel Channel: Lady Liberty

http://travel.discovery.com/convergence/americanicon/ladyliberty/statue.html

*****

This Lady Liberty site is part of Travel Channel’s American Icon’s series, and is my pick of the day because of its interactivity. Click on Lady Liberty’s hot spots (such as her torch, crown, or tablet) to learn more about her. As you click, two short features will appear in the text box. Use the up and down triangles to navigate through the articles. Next stop is the Journey to Ellis Island, for audio stories from immigrants. And for a final treat, be sure to view the three-minute special Lady Liberty tribute slide show.



Who is Emma Lazarus?

http://www.soros.org/emma/html/emma_.html

***

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.” These words are the most quoted of Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus” which adorns the base of the State of Liberty. Lazarus was born in New York City in 1849, and was a published poet and author by age twenty-five. In 1883, she published the poem to raise money for the construction of the pedestal for the Statue of Liberty. Unfortunately Lazarus didn’t live to see her poem placed on a bronze plaque at Lady Liberty’s feet in 1901. To read the poem, click on Forward on the bottom of this biography page.
