This Is America! Flag Collage

Students cut up magazines and newspapers to create an American flag collage — a visual essay of their thoughts about “What America Means to Me.”

Fold the Flag

Students learn to fold a flag properly and practice the technique by folding paper flags.

Peace Pledge

I used this lesson with my children after the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01. We are an upstate community of New York and have been hard hit by these horrific events. My students needed some type of pro-active activity to help them cope.

The 50 States

To identify the location of a state, compare population sizes from various states, learn the state bird, flag, and location on the map.

The American Flag

Students will be able to name the number of stars, the number of red stripes, the number of white stripes, and name what each represents.
