American Flag Worksheets

Almost everyone in America knows the Pledge of Allegiance. When you were a kid you more than likely rattled it off every day as fast as possible without even really understanding it. I know I did. It wasn’t anything important, just part of the day like attendance and recess. I didn’t know much about it until I was at church learning about the pledge to the American Flag, the Christian Flag, and the Bible. I remember spending about a month learning about each flag and pledge.

We learned what the pledge really meant, the significance of the colors on the flag, and how to care for it. After that, saying the pledge every morning at school meant a little bit more to me. It was no longer a task to hurry through, but a time of respect.

AJ learned the pledge in kindergarten. She would mess up the words and had no idea what they meant, but she knew it. When she got to be in about third grade we learned a lot about the American Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. We learned the history behind the flag and some basic rules about it.

We don’t say the pledge every day. Maybe we should, but it is not something we do. She knows a lot about the flag, but during times when the country seems to be a little more patriotic I try to revisitĀ our study of the AmericanĀ Flag. We go over the pledge, the look and care for the American Flag, the Star Spangled Banner, and a few other items.

I made this packet for AJ to work on. It covers some basic facts about the American Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. I will have AJ fill out most of it from memory, and the rest I will have her look up. Your child may be able to answer the questions from prior knowledge, or they may need a little help. Here are a few websites that may help.
