In this Building Block video, an American flag flaps in a strong breeze next to the Capitol Dome. As framed by two plumes of water from the Senate Garage Fountain, this clip first focuses on the fountains, then switches focus to the building and the flag.
Building Blocks are high-quality raw materials such as video clips, images, and documents for students and teachers to use in creating their own media presentations.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
