Last year we had a "Celebration of U.S." - Us being not only United States
but us as in the Flinthills Community. I had each grade work on a different
patriotic project as well as make a mini hand flag (paint the fingers red
and the palm blue, press onto white paper). This made an awesome quilt like
panel. The artshow was fantastic with all that red, white, and blue. I plan
to have students again create patriotic projects and reflect on the freedoms
they enjoy. I still have my projects posted on my site if you're looking for
something along those lines.
