Flag Day Resource: History of the American Flag

Flag Day is on June 14 to mark the day that the United States adopted the flag in 1777. Flag Day is celebrated around the country to honor the flag and what it represents to American citizens.

Consider using the video below, produced by Drexel University Online, in your adult education or citizenship classes to explain the history of the United States flag. The informative video is a great teaching tool to explore the history and the myths surrounding the Stars and Stripes.

After watching the video, consider exploring this resource by the Library of Congress for a brief explanation of the history of Flag Day.

Will you use these resources with your students? What other activities, if any, do you have planned for Flag Day?
