Plan a Celebration!
Reform the original “expert" groups. These groups will prepare the components of the community program, as well as the decorations for the ceremony.
Assign the groups the following tasks:
Write a three to five minute speech in which the group explains how a flag should be used and cared for.
Find or write a poem about respecting the flag.
Make a mural that shows proper flag care and etiquette. The mural should be at least 3 feet by 6 feet.
Flag History and Symbolism
Write a three to five minute skit that explains the origin of the U.S. flag and the symbols used on it.
Find or write a poem about the flag as a symbol of the United States.
Make an illustrated timeline to show the changes in the U.S. flag from its beginning to today. The timeline should be at least 3 feet by 6 feet.
Flag Day History
Write a three- to five-minute speech that explains how this day started, how it has been celebrated during its history, and why we continue to celebrate today.
Find or write a song about the flag that matches the reasons for celebrating this special day.
Make a mural about Flag Day celebrations and their history. The mural should be at least 3 feet by 6 feet.
