Design your own sensory-filled American flag with a little help from Betsy Ross! 

  • This template makes decorating easy for all grade levels! Whether your students use poms, watercolors, or even glitter glue, each flag will be just as unique as they are. Each material offers a different sensory experience and every student can follow a technique that challenges them to use their fine motor skills!
  • Wave ‘Em High: Ask your students to work inside the lines of the template while adding their materials — this simple instruction will help strengthen their fine motor skills as they create straight lines and pay attention to the details of their work.

Betsy Ross was a Philadelphian seamstress who received a request from George Washington to design a flag for a new nation — the United States of America. She used her skills to create five-pointed stars and stripes out of cloth. In class, examine the life and legend of the woman who created the American flag!
