Our Country's Flag
Map of the United States, red, white, and blue construction paper, crayons, glue
Instead of making the standard rectangular-shaped flag, you can make a flag in the shape of the United States. Trace a map of the United States to be used as an outline. You can either color this outline of the U.S. or paste the stars and stripes on it. As they work on this, explain to them that each of the stars represent a state, why the colors were chosen and that the thirteen stripes stand for the original thirteen colonies.
