FLAG DAY PRINTABLEJune 14th is Flag Day and even though Flag Day isn’t our biggest patriotic day it’s still a great excuse to teach a little history and explain how important a role the United States Flag has had in it. Flag Day commemorates the resolution of the Second Continental Congress’ adoption of the flag in 1777.  For very young children just explaining what the flag represents is a great start, older children can learn more about all it’s different versions and how it’s evolved along with the country. I thought making a fun Flag Day activity printable that included a simple word search, a matching game, and a spot to draw their own flag would be a great way to spark interest in the topic. After completing the activity sheet, you can check out more about the flag’s history here.
