Forth of July Week

In honor of our nation's birthday, we're celebrating the Forth of July all week! Yesterday, we learned about the original 13 colonies. Then one of the kiddos shared the meaning of our state flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. We looked at a picture of the first flag of the Revolution. After it sent a mixed message, George Washington visited Betsy Ross with a sketch for a new flag. It included six-pointed stars. Betsy Ross showed him a cool trick to cut a five-pointed star - and the rest is history. Here's the link to make your own 5 point star in one snip star www.ushistory.org/betsy/flagstar.html .
