1. A Closer Look at the Pledge of Allegiance
The students will be divided into five groups. Each group will be given a line of the pledge of allegiance to examine. The students will look up underlined words in a dictionary to find out what they really mean. (pledge, allegiance, republic, indivisible, liberty, justice, etc.) Each group will report their results to the class. Together, the class will summarize what the pledge means and why we say it.
2. The History of Our Flag
After the class has studied the American flag, students will each be given an important time in the flag’s history. As a class, the students will decide how to piece the information together in the order that they happened. Once everyone agrees on the correct order, the information will be placed on the timeline that will remain in the classroom.
The students will learn about the various symbols the flag has, and what they represent. By searching the internet, they will find another important symbol for America. They will share their results with the class.
