My daughter has to do a collage project. The pictures have to be of things that represent our country (america) Some examples given were the White house, bald eagle and washington monument. What are some other pictures I could look for? We also need a large and creative title for her project. I'm not good at creative titles...so any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

How about a picture of a group of people that are of different nationalities, and colors. that is what America is made up of.

Mt. Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, the Lincoln Memorial, the Liberty Bell, a picture of a military fighter plane or a tank, the Grand Canyon, a picture of a cowboy on a horse, a picture of a Native American (indian), a buffalo, the Pentagon, the Brooklyn bridge, the St. Louis arch, the World Trade Center, a Chevy Corvette or Camaro, or the Golden Gate Bridge would all be good things to put into your report. A good title would be PORTRAITS OF AMERICA...hope this helps.

you can have bear, red wood trees, mountains, statue of liberty,american flag, rose,faces of the presidents, golden gate bridge, mt. Rushmore, Smithsonian museum, etc. there are too many to incorporate on that collage. For the title I can suggest the following: 1. A Jigsaw of America's Heritage 2. USA: United in its Background 3. The Complex make up of America 4. Hail America and its Marvelous Design those are just my idea, it might be helpful to you.

You could use pictures of historical people.. like George Washington, Abe Lincoln.. people like that or even current figures like Obama. You could use a picture of American money, American sports like football and baseball. For a title.. My Country Tis Of Thee.. or America the Beautiful.

I think a picture of the White House, the Capitol and the Supreme Court to represent our three branches of government. I'd also put in a picture of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The Statue of Liberty and Independence Hall should go somewhere in the collage. She could add various landmarks across the United States. Of course, pictures of the U.S. Flag should be included, maybe one of the original flag with the 13 original colonies and the others up to our current flag with 50 stars. Pictures representing popular American sports would also be fitting, maybe from the World Series, the Super Bowl, the Daytona and Indy 500s. Of course, you need to add apple pie! I think thing that could be shown to represent American would be people of all races, ethnicities and nationalities. After all, we are the melting pot. I'm not so good at creative titles either but maybe something like "America the Beautiful Because We Are All Americans". Annie

I think the statue of Liberty is one symbol of America or the American flag? Wherever you go if you can can see the American flag or the statue of liberty even if there is no word that says, America, you can really identify the these are American symbols.
