Class Experience

1. The history of Juneteenth.
2. How it is celebrated today
3. How to make your own Juneteenth flag
I have been celebrating Juneteenth as an African-American for over 20+ years.
Not required but a nice to have for young learners.
Books about Juneteenth that will make a great addition to your home collection:
Juneteenth For Mazie by Floyd Cooper
All Different Now: Juneteenth, The First Day of Freedom by Angela Johnson
Another wonderful book that contains more facts is: Juneteenth, A Celebration of Freedom by Charles A. Taylor 

The colors of the flag are Blue, Red, and White.
If students use construction paper, they will need one color of each, scissors, and a glue stick.

Students may also decide to color or paint a flag, in which case they would need white paper, and either crayons, colored pencils or paints in the above colors.
Students will share their completed flags with the group
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
