This web quest was designed for Kindergarten students to explore US national symbols including the Pledge of Allegiance, National Anthem, American Flag, Statue of Liberty and the White House.

Introduction

Exciting news!! We are going to have a nestudent joining our classroom! His name is Max and he is from a country called Australia! We will need to help Max learn a little bit about our country. One of the first things we do in the morning is look at the American Flag and say the Pledge of Allegiance. Do you know why we say those words or look at the American Flag? I bet Max doesn't know either!
