There are a lot of resources here to cover the topic broadly or as in depth as you like, with background on the War of 1812, and links to additional image, document and web resources such as Smithsonian’s “Star Spangled Banner” site.

War of 1812: Grade 2 Reader: Begins with a pictorial timeline of the founding of the U.S., and ends with chapters on the National Anthem and Dolley Madison, and a glossary.
