How do you learn about the Star Spangled Banner and 4th July

How would you learn about the Star Spangled Banner and why we celebrate the 4th July? If you go to normal school you might read a book, write a book report, maybe do some worksheets.

We watched a video from our local library about 4th July. Did you know that the 3rd verse is normally not sung because it is considered to dark. It didn’t become our national anthem untill 1931 almost 127 years after the war of 1812. Here is what the girls learned.

For even more Unschool fun we decided to paint our nails to represent the great National Holiday.  The girls got out the Red, blue and White nail polish and went to work painting and repainting there nails so they would look perfect.
