Memorial Day Flag Art

PaperFlagArt

A little ratio art might be a fun way to get ready for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday.  In this activity students measure; create whole number ratios for the official U.S. flag; decide how our artistic flags will be different from the official flag; make stars from regular pentagons, and finally create a flag design in honor of Memorial Day.
