Flag Day

It’s a little known holiday, and not well-celebrated at all, but Flag Day can be wonderful for homeschoolers.  At our house, we put up our patriotic decorations, normally reserved for the Fourth of July.  We just leave them up for a month or so.  Red, white, and blue bunting decorates the porch, and of course flags are everywhere here.  Flag Day is simply the celebration of the American flag, and everything it stands for.  This fun holiday is June, right in between Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.  It’s a great opportunity for kids to learn why we have stars on our flag, and what the red and white stripes stand for.  How does our flag differ now from the original flag when our country was formed?
