This sculpture of Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial relates to the modern American characteristic of civilization, The Arts because about 3.5 million people visit the Lincoln memorial annually and Abraham Lincoln was America's 16th president. Also this relates because one of the categories for The Arts is sculpting, and whoever made this had to sculpt it out.

The phone is a practical tool that can call, text, check email, take photos, go on the internet, and many more. The Iphone is American because the phone is made by AT&T, an American phone company.
This LG four door French Door refrigerator represents the modern American characteristic of civilization, Technology because this refrigerator is a practical tool that keeps your food from being infected by bacteria, so your food will last longer. It is American because it is made by LG, and LG have headquarters in America so they can sell their products to Americans everyday.

Writing
America's 44th president Barack Obama connects to the modern American characteristic of civilization, Government, because Barack Obama is one of the 44 presidents that got selected to take charge of America and who us Americans voted for. He is modern because he is currently the president of America. He connects to government because since he is the president he is the head of the government and makes all the choices for America. So he commands the army, taxes, trade and many more.
The white house relates to the modern American characteristic of civilization, Government because the white house in Washington D.C. is home to the current president of the United States, Barack Obama. Barack Obama is now the current president and is in charge of the government. And he lives in the white house in D.C. so the white house is the place where the president works, plays, talks, and many other things. It is modern because since Obama is now currently the president, so it's modern because he does his work in there. It connectss to Government because Obama is the leader of the government, and sice he works in the white house. That's his home where he commands the government.
This ladybug connects to the modern American characteristic of civilization, Stable Food Supply because farmers use ladybugs to kill pests such as aphids, plant lice, whitefly, mites and scale insects. And there are many farms in the U.S. being used each year for grapes, corn, apples, and grain. This is modern because farmers still use the tactic today so they can make money instead of having all their plants sie. This also connects to the characteristic because using ladybugs is one tactic out of many to raise crops. But it is one of the best ways to raise organic crops and they need the ladybugs to kill the pests so the pests don't kill the plants.
Whole Foods grocery store relates to the modern American characteristic of civilization, Stable Food Supply because Whole Foods is an American grocery store that has many stores in the U.S. Also because Whole Foods has pretty much all of it's costumers as Americans. So they are selling their products to Americans just like me and you. it is modern because there are many Whole Foods stores in the U.S. today. And most of which are selling or buying products right at this very moment. It also connects to the characteristic because to have enough food to have a grocery store you need to have a stable food supply or else you will just be keeping all the food from everybody else so the fellow citizens will starve. But that is not the case here because we have more than a stable food supply.
This No. 2 pencil connects to the modern American characteristic of civilization, Writing because the pencil is one of the instruments that Americans use to write words using most languages, mostly the english language. It is modern because I see stores such as Walgreens, an American store that sells a lot of things that people can use everyday, and everytime I go into that Walgreens, they have the No. 2 pencils ready for people to purchase it.
The Bill of Rights relates to the modern American characteristic of civilization, Writing because the bill is composed of english letters such as A,B, and C that are letters of the english alphabet that is the way that most Americans write everyday. The bill is modern because even though the bill was written in 1789 but and ratified in 1791, we still follow the rights that there are on the bill such as Article number II (2), "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." This means that anyone can obtain a weapon, usually a gun, but nowadays they have to fill out a permit for you to have a gun based on their standards.
The Bible relates to the modern American characteristic of civilization, Religion because about 92% of Americans own a bible in their household. It is modern because about 59% of Americans read the bible daily. And it connects to the characteristic because the bible is the holy book of Christianity that they usually practice when they go to church which is about 44% of Americans.
A church connects to the modern American characteristic of civilization, Religion because about 44% of Americans attend church weekly. It also connects to the characteristic because in a church is where most Americans usually practice the bible, and the bible is the holy book of Christianity which is read by 59% of Americans.
The 44th president, Barack Obama represents the modern American characteristic of civilization, Social Structure because Barack Obama is now currently the president of the United States that most Americans voted for. It also represents the characteristic because since he is the president he is at the top of the social structure because he has the most responsibility to make sure that our country is safe and has what it needs. So his part in the country is the most important.
The Berg Snow Professionals snowplow drivers that clean up the streets and sidewalks represent the modern American characteristic of civilization, Social Structure because Berg Snow Professionals are an American company that is here in Highland Park. They are modern because they are one of the companies that will plow your snow from the streets and sidewalk when you need it. Also even though they still have the reponsibility of plowing the streets so people can go to work, and even though Barack Obama and the company have responibilities, Obamas is more important so they plowing company is lower on the social structure list than the president.
