Product Description
Students read a few short passages about Betsy Ross (myths and truths) and the creation of the American flag during the Revolutionary War. They then answer 12 questions. This would be great for a sub, during Women's History Month, or during a Revolutionary War unit! Answers are included where appropriate.

Sample questions include:
--Using prior knowledge or context clues, why do you think her second husband was charged with treason?
--Why would documentation not exist supporting the claim that Betsy made the first flag? If it does exist, why might it not have been found?
-- Explain the meaning of “a new constellation” in the context of 1777 and the Patriotic endeavor.
--Why is family oral history as the only source of information not credible for historians?
