Flag Day, June 14th

On June 14th we honor the American Symbol the flag.
To many citizens it means FREEDOM.
When flown citizens display patriotism.
These two resources will inform your students about the history of the flag as well as its meaning.

One of my favorite books to share with my class during this lesson is The Flag We Love!

The resource includes informational text in 3 differentiated forms.
These are followed by a graphic organizer to record key details from the text and a True/False using facts from the text.
Activities include:
The flag stands for FREEDOM.  What are you free to do?
Betsy Ross was a seamstress.  What do you want to do when you are older?
The Pledge...fill in the missing words.
Sensory...where might you hear, see, touch.
Color a flag.
Create a family flag.
Word Work...word search, making words with patriotism.
The current flag has 50 stars.  Skip counting.
Flag Code...What rules do you follow?

The google slides include:
Informational text on Flag Day is followed by recall questions using text.
Informational text on the nickname of the flag followed by student writing a description for the flag.
Informational text on Betsy Ross.  Students write what they would like to do in the future.
The flag stands for FREEDOM.  Students write what they are free to do.
Francis Scott Key wrote the Star-Spangled Banner.  Students list places they might hear the song and see the flag.
