Have you seen those handprint American flags? I can't remember where or when I first saw them, but I've been wanting to make one for a while now. I thought it would be a great activity for September 11.
I got some white butcher paper, drew some outlines for the stars and stripes, and then had the students paint and stamp their hands.
It's not perfect, but we did manage to get 13 stripes on there!
We went to the park today, and I took this snapshot.
And of course, the obligatory silly shot. :)
I'm going to hang the flag in the fifth grade hallway.
