Let children study the U.S. flag. You may also wish to show them earlier versions of Old Glory. Then ask students to supply words that describe our flag and list them on the board. Have each child choose a word or two and help him/her use those words to create a sentence about the flag. Children can copy their sentences onto a piece of paper and draw a flag picture to go with it. Or you might provide copies of this U.S. flag coloring page for students to color.
