Anyone else hear Martina McBride belting out a hit when you read that title?
For the majority of you (I hope), it is summer break and you aren’t spending too much time thinking about lesson planning. But it’s never a bad idea to have some great Independence Day lesson plans in your back pocket for a rainy day! All of my 4th of July lesson planning came when I was running a preschool summer camp; squeeze some glue on a black piece of construction paper, throw some glitter at it, and BOOM . . . a firework!
Luckily these resources have a bit more history to them for those teachers that like to cover some actual content in their classrooms!
- NEA Lesson Plans
- Center for Civic Education Lesson Plan
- ReadWriteThink Classroom Activity
- PBS Learning Media Video
Don’t forget to check back later this fall for a collection of Constitution Day lesson plans and resources!
