I could envision a colorful and interesting Flag Day presentation given by 4th, 5th, or 6th graders using the materials in this product. Once the pages are printed out, the students are the ones that do the rest of the “prepping” for the show. If you want to use this solely as a classroom activity, all you have to do is print out the pages.
There are 29 flags to color by number (not all are red, white, and blue). The flags range from pre Revolutionary times to the present. Each flag is presented in chronological order and comes with a snippet of our country’s history.
•29 different color by number flags from various phases in America’s history
•Historical facts for each flag
•Explanation of flag elements
•Flag quiz (fill in the blank with word bank)
•Flag labeling page
•3D paper fireworks making (from recycled magazines)
•Can be used for Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July
Being that May seems to be a “launching pad” for a series of patriotic holidays, you can have the class do one flag per day in chronological order. This is a nice end of the year project as you count down to the end of the school year. End with a bang! Detailed instructions on how to make fireworks decorations from recycled old magazines are provided!
