The students will brainstorm what they know about the American flag and Pledge of Allegiance today. They will then go back in time and will learn from a historic teacher about the American flag through the eyes of a 1910 student. The enthusiasm for patriotism over 100 years ago will be shared. Students will compare the flag today to the flag 108 years ago. The vocabulary of the pledge will be presented to help create better understanding of the words and what they meant then and now.
