This is one giant example of the types of student created projects that we work to create in our Classroom Museum. This is a student created replic of the original Star Spangled Banner. There were originally two flags. This is the larger of the two. It is accurate in shape and size to the original flag created by Mary Pickersgill for Col. Armisted in 1814.
Our flag was born as a result of the 8th Grade project of Jill Applegate and Carly Granato. Then over 90 students grades 6-8, came in on a Saturday with the help and support of many parents to complete the entire flag. Our flag has been opened all over Washington D.C. and in seven states. We are currently planning on the creation of the smaller of the two flags this year.
