Betsy Ross/American Flag

Our Betsy Ross/American Flag lesson plan teaches students about Betsy Ross and her possible contribution to the creation of the American flag. Students also learn about Betsy Ross’s early life and other accomplishments.

Our Betsy Ross/American Flag lesson plan introduces students to the life and contributions of Besty Ross, including her design of the American flag. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and work collaboratively with other students in order to create a class flag; students then vote on their favorite, which becomes the class flag. Students are also asked to answer matching and short answer questions about Besty Ross’ life and the creation of the American flag in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify Betsy Ross, describe aspects of her life, and recount her possible role in the design of the American flag. The students will be able to explain the history of the American flag.
