To begin, I presented the American flag to Ladybug and Mister and we talked about the flag's characteristics. Then, I gave them paper and red and blue finger paint and asked them to make an American flag on their paper.
A few days after we did our art, I showed them six American flag paintings. I put them out on the rug and let them think about what they were seeing.
I have left the American flag prints in a basket on the shelf if they want to continue to study them.
