Hello, Far Horizons Families! Brittany here with an adaptation of a classroom favorite: "The Flag Work" that can be done at home, over and over again.    


·  A map of The World or The United States (physical or digital)

·  Internet or book with information about country or state flags

·  Pencil

·  Paper

·  Colored pencils


Print out or show your kiddo a map of the world and have them point to a spot, any spot. Then, help them find the name of the place they chose and an image of that country's flag. Unless they are at a level where they can do their own research, assist them in exploring the significance of the flag to its country and how it came be. If they have questions, show them how to find the answers.

With the colored pencils, a piece of paper and a pencil for writing, your child(ren) will have everything they need to draw the flag, then write country's name.

I hope you are all enjoying your time together and finding more and more ways to stay healthy and well. 

All my best, Brittany

Extension: Have them write facts about the country and the flag.
