To celebrate Flag Day, this fun set includes 2 cootie catchers with trivia about the American flag.
The first cootie catcher features questions about the appearance and symbolism of the flag. The second cootie catcher contains questions about the history of the flag and its nicknames.
To begin the activity, students must fold the cootie catchers. In pairs the first partner can have the other choose a word on the outside flaps. The first partner spells out that word while moving the flaps in and out. The second partner can then choose a number and then another number while the first moves the flaps for each count. The second partner can then choose a final number that reveals a trivia question to the first partner. The first partner should hide and ask this question aloud to the second, as the answer is included underneath.
Partners can then switch roles.
To make the activity more engaging, partners can be given different versions of the cootie catchers.
Answer recording sheets are also provided.
