When you are studying the Civil War, why not make a Confederate flag? The Union flag was similar to today’s flag but with fewer stars. The Confederate flag, however, was different and interesting while using the same colors of red, white, and blue.
You will need red and navy blue card stock paper, scissors, white school glue, a ruler, silver star stickers, and a silver marker.
Cut out a rectangle of red card stock paper. This will be the background of your flag. Using the red rectangle as a sample, cut a navy blue piece of card stock paper to the same size as the flag. Now cut V’s out of the two sides, and larger V’s out of the top and bottom. It should look like an X. Glue it down.
