A Citizenship Flag


Help half the children trace their handprints on white paper while the others trace their handprints on red paper. Cut out handprints and have students tell you one way they could be good citizens. Record each child's idea on his/her handprint. Put handprints aside. Next, staple a blue rectangular piece of paper in the upper left corner of a bulletin board. Glue white stars on it. On some of the stars write words that describe good citizenship (fair, kind, helpful). Now staple the handprints onto the bulletin board (around the blue) to form the stripes of our flag. If necessary, place additional handprints -- with nothing written on them -- to make the number of stripes needed. Title the bulletin board "We Are Good Citizens."
