Our flag is a patriotic symbol of America, fought for and died for, cared for and appreciated. It represents the people, places, beliefs, and ideals that this country was founded upon, and all that we aspire to.
Flag Day is celebrated on June 14th every year, and this unit study will help your students remember what the flag represents and the people who risked everything to keep it flying. Check out the topics included:
Investigate the history of the flag and learn about Betsy Ross, Francis Scott Key, and other patriotic heroes. Each day your child will explore and investigate, creating and adding more learning components to his Flag Day lapbook—building a wonderful reminder of all that he is learning, to be enjoyed for years to come.
Here’s what parents are saying about Flag Day:
“Flag Day will have you snapping to attention . . . attention to all the Americana detail! You are going to love this journey into American history with Old Glory! There is so much more to Flag Day than a few dates and pictures!
Learn songs and stories passed down for generations. . . . Meet patriots like Betsy Ross and Paul Revere! Research icons of American history like the Liberty Bell, Mount Rushmore and the Statue of Liberty. True to Amanda Bennett style, there are many activities to do and pursue . . . there will be no boredom here for your scholars! Amanda’s writing style and attention to detail always bring us back for more . . . Flag Day is no exception!”

“One of my most favorite things about homeschooling is making traditions I would have not made otherwise. I’m sad to say that I have never celebrated Flag Day, so I was happy to see this Flag Day addition to the Download N Go line-up!
This title takes a deeper look into the flag we know and love. Flag Day is filled with information that our children need to know to become the best patriots they can be.
Amanda and her team have done a wonderful job tying in all of the things we love about her unit studies, and our country. If you want to start a meaningful tradition with your family, and learn a whole lot on the way, then download this newest offering from Download N Go. Flag Day will take your family on an historic journey of patriotic proportions!”

“Did you know we have a holiday called Flag Day? Well, we do and what’s even better is the newest Download-N-Go Study by Amanda Bennett. Your kids will learn some amazing things while working through this unit study including the story behind the first flag of our country, the date of this holiday, some important and key historic figures (including Betsy Ross and Paul Revere). They will also learn some patriotic songs, symbols and even the Pledge of Allegiance.
Within these daily lessons your child will be learning through watching entertaining yet educational videos and websites that are linked to throughout the unit. There are books that will also coincide with each day to help make this study your all in one stop for most of your subjects (you probably need to add in a little more math). When we do these units we totally focus on the day at hand to really get the most out of the unit.
With these units the information is fun, engaging and full of wonderful tidbits, especially created for the target audience of K-4. One of my favorite things about the DNG units is their ability to be lengthened to more than one week. With my children, sometimes they get totally interested in one part of the study, so we stay there a little longer and get the most out of it.
Another great reason to purchase the DNGs is that… you can use it over and over again. Each time you come back to the unit your children will learn more (and so will you). So why not go and check out Flag Day? Summer is the perfect time to take a “break” from your normal school and have some fun while doing school.“
