The American Flag is a symbol of our country.  It reminds us of what our founding fathers did to help our country grow strong and proud.  Use what you know about the American Flag to create your own flag using construction paper, crayons, markers, or whatever craft supplies you have around.  You can even download the attached flag outline and color it.  Have your flag describe you.  Be creative! Use your favorite colors, shapes, and symbols when making your flag.  Hang it in a special area of your room.   When you are done, use the worksheet to create an information sheet about your flag.  Write a pledge, give it nicknames, and describe what the colors stand for.
