Flags are used for visual communication, signaling, decoration, and display. Flags are used to signal things like pirates, infection, and truce. Even how a flag is flown or when it is lowered can be symbolic. Flags can be used by organizations, countries, communities, and schools. Learning about flags is a great way to start learning more about the world we all live in.

I have been teaching in public and private schools in the United States and Germany for over 25 years. I have been on Outschool for 3 years. When I taught at the International School of Hamburg, we would have United Nations Week every October. It was there that I helped students create flags from their home countries and my interest in flags took off. I love learning about flags, their many uses, their symbolism, and their beauty.
Printed PDF, pencil, scissors, glue stick, something to color with like markers, crayons, or colored pencils.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students should always have parental guidance when using scissors.
To create this class, I used britannica.com and nationalgeographic.org. I also used these books: 199 Flags by Orith Kolodny, Nautical Flags by various authors, Flags of the World by Sylvie Bednar, Flags of the World by Lyn Coutts, and World Books Encyclopedia of Flags.
