Make a Paper Chain to remember the important ideas
Red construction paper
Crayons or markers
1. On the piece of paper, use a ruler to mark off 1-inch strips. Cut the strips.
2. With a crayon or marker, print words on the strips that are important to remember on Juneteenth. Some ideas are "freedom," "hopes," "slavery," and "goals."
3. Form one of the strips into a circle and glue the ends together.
4. Form the next circle and loop it into the first circle. Glue the ends. Repeat until all of the strips are connected. Make the chain as long as you want by adding more strips.
5. Share the words on your chain, and tell friends why they are important ideas to remember!
