5. What do the colors Red, White and Blue each mean on the flag?
6. What is the nickname of the American Flag?
1. 50 stars
2. 13 stripes
3. Our 50 states
4. The 13 original colonies
5. Red means courage. White means strength. Blue means justice
6. Old Glory or the Star Spangled Banner
Print out an American Flag coloring sheet from your printer—-> American Flag Coloring Page by Make and Takes
and sing some patriotic songs with your kids as well. One of my favorites is God Bless America because it is a shorter and easier song for kids to remember
God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above
From the mountains To the prairies,
To the ocean white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
Enjoy your Flag Day today. What are you doing to celebrate?
