Today's Lesson: Betsy Ross

"Today the American knight holds the commercial supremacy of the world."-Betsy Ross

Today's we are learning about Betsy Ross and her contribution to the American Revolution.  The only quote I could find for her is a rather difficult one to understand, so I will have the kids look up the definitions of the words they don't understand and tell me their interpretations. Here is a coloring sheet with some interesting facts.  Here is a short cloze worksheet about Betsy Ross.  Kids can color their own Betsy Ross flag.    Teacher Vision has a short unit study and a biography that you can download.  And we will be watching Liberty's Kids episode 14 "New York, New York," which features Betsy Ross.

Have Fun Learning!
