Our school had a huge celebration to mark the 200th Birthday of the Star Spangled Banner. My students wanted to make a special flag for the occasion, and this is the "recipe" we came up with.
It's 3 feet by 4.5 feet of red, white and blue paper and patriotism! We had a wonderful time making it together, and I hope it's something you can do with your students, as well.
The flag is not just for the Star Spangled Banner's Birthday... Think Flag Day, 4th of July, Veteran's Day, Presidents' Day... Maybe I'll just keep this up all year!
