Every morning, students across the United States stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance. Yet, most of them do not understand what it means. This power point presentation explains, phrase by phrase, the meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance. Your students will have a different attitude toward this morning ritual once it becomes meaningful to them and they recognize the significance of the few words that they repeat. This is perfect for a patriotic celebration just as Veteran's Day, President's Day, Constitution Day, as part of an American history unit, or just to help your students understand the pledge and be more respectful when it is recited.
