Product Description

Invite your students to learn about the history of the California state flag with this engaging activity!

This is a great supplemental lesson to use if you're teaching about the California Bear Flag Revolt, state history, or westward expansion in a U.S. History class for 6-9th grade. Students are challenged to research various websites (included below) to fill out a worksheet independently or with a partner. While gaining a deeper context of California state history, students will also get to learn the story and symbolism of a famous flag of their choice, and even design their own!

All websites are included below. This activity typically takes ~30 minutes and would also make a great supplement for homework, or sub plans!
