In "The Star-Spangled Banner," fourth and fifth grade students can learn more about how our national anthem was created. They will compare an article to a video about this topic, hold a classroom debate about the American flag, find main ideas and key details, and use current event notebook illustrations.
This curriculum is a part of "A Connection to the World for Elementary School Students" series. It is set up as once-a-week, single-session activities.
