Boo {Hoo} Broken Bones & a freebie

My ten year old son, Quinn, went to the pumpkin patch with his best buddy today. He came home looking deadly pale and holding his right arm gingerly to his chest. Apparently they got a little too daring jumping off hay bales. He put his arm out to try to break his fall. As soon as I heard that I figured we were in for it.

3 hours and some painful x-rays later, it was determined that he has broken his elbow in 2 places and possibly fractured his wrist. We will need to see a pediatric orthopedist tomorrow.  Of course it was his writing hand, too! I had to help him go to the bathroom, change his clothes, brush his teeth... My poor baby!

Before my afternoon took a dramatic turn, I had uploaded a booklet I made on American Symbols as a freebie. I usually don't like the workbook pages that come with our series so I made this to visually reinforce the vocabulary. I printed in black and white and let the kids color each page. I included an answer key as well.
