Dating back to 1775, there have been over twenty different versions of the flag of the United States. The reason the flag keeps changing is the symbolism represented by the stars and stripes. The thirteen stripes represent the British colonies who declared independence giving birth to a nation. The stars represent the states and territories of the United States and the flag kept changing as more states joined the union.

Great on a tablet PC!

We wanted our pupils to use their tablet PCs in our geography lessons but we found there was a shortage of good resources to use with them. So we started making web pages that can be used in lessons that were accessed through the tablet's browser. What do you think? How can we do this better? Drop us an email to let us know.
