She's a Grand Old---Flag

Each and every morning our elementary students, as most students do across the United States, face the American flag , place their hands over their hearts and recite the Pledge of Allegiance.  On February 22, 2011 the online version of the SunSentinel posted a very informative, small interactive about our flag.  Users of the interactive gain facts about the images and colors used in our flag.  By clicking on a star with a state abbreviation in it, the flag is pictured as it was when that particular state was admitted to the Union.  Viewers are also shown the various changes that have transpired over the history of our Nation and its symbol that is a reflection of those changes.
