Collection Contents


After studying the origins and history of the American flag, students will break into workgroups of 4 or 5 to design a group flag. They will be given the parameters that the flag will have to be designed to relay the following information to the teacher: the number of students in the group, the number of boys/girls in the group, and at least two colors that represent them in some way. Using the design process they will need to bring together their prior knowledge of symbols and colors, formulate possible elements to relay information, and create samples to vote on. They will then present their ideas to the teacher before the final flag is made.
