Country Factfile Flags

Country Factfile Flags

Pupils research a country for basic information. 2 per page. Draw flag on the back. I used these for First Level (P2/3) with an atlas and online websites. Suggestions for use: Print on card so the research can be recorded one side and pupils can draw the flag of the country on the other. Then attach paper straws to one side to make a 'flag' for a great display!
