This powerpoint educates students the history of the Star Spangled Banner and the steps it took for it to become our national anthem. At the end of the powerpoint, it gives the students an opportunity to read the entire anthem. Most students don't realize it is actually a longer song than what they sing at the games. The very last slide is a project my students would do after they have read through the powerpoint. They have to summarize the history of the Star Spangled banner on the red stripes and draw a picture on the white stripes. They write words that describe America on the stars. They really liked this project!
