My objective with this Flag Unit is to get primary students to look up words in alphabetical order, listen and record facts and write a bibliography citation for a nonfiction book.
This unit includes:
1. a book for students to color flags
2. a book for students to write book information and facts
3. cards for every nation divided by continent
4. a list of nonfiction books about flags
Students listen to a book about flags, discuss facts, copy the book publishing information and record three facts they learned into the Flag Fact book.
To use the Flag Book, students will need a resource such as an almanac, encyclopedia, atlas or the internet. The book is set up to color 4 flags from each continent. Students select a card from the continent deck of cards, find that flag in their almanac or atlas, then color the flag into their book.
This is a very popular unit with my students and I like it because they are practicing a lot of skills in a fun way.
