Star-Spangled Banner: Smithsonian style

Greetings! Thanks for stopping by to see what's going on in the Westgate music room.

Last week, our students in 4th grade studied about the history of our national anthem, the Star-Spangled Banner. I shared the following website in class, so I thought I'd post it here as well! The Smithsonian Museum of American History has an amazing exhibit on the history of the flag that inspired the writer, Francis Scott Key, to draft a poem that later became our national anthem. My family had the privilege of visiting the exhibit this past summer, and it is amazing! Here is the link to the interactive Star-Spangled Banner activities on the Smithsonian website:

Have a great week! More updates to come later.
