Jean Learns About National Symbols and Holidays
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "There is only a little more information about the citizenship test to study for," Jean told his friend Rob.
 
2     "What's that?" Rob asked.
 
3     "It's about national symbols and holidays," Jean answered.
 
4     "Well, let's get going," Rob said. "How can I help you?"
 
5     "Tell me about the U.S. flag," Jean said.
 
6     "It has thirteen stripes," Rob explained. "These stand for the original thirteen colonies. It also has 50 stars. There is one for each state. When we say the Pledge of Allegiance we show loyalty to our country and our flag.
 
7     "We also show our loyalty when we sing the national anthem. Ours is called the Star-Spangled Banner," Rob explained. "It was made from a poem written by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812. But it wasn't officially our national anthem until 1931."
 
8     "That's interesting," Jean said. "That's why I like studying with you. You know all these cool facts that make it fun."
 
9     "Glad I can help," Rob chuckled. "What other symbol do you need to know about?"
