What Does It Mean to be American?

Students in Mr. Egan’s US history class explored the question, “What does it mean to be American?” Using this prompt, students studied the current American flag and the meaning behind its different symbols, then considered what a new flag could look like.

Working in teams of two, students took apart wood pallets and put them together again as a 3 to 5 ratio rectangle (because 3:5 is the American flag’s official size). They designed their flag in Abode Illustrator and used the laser cutter to imprint the design.
