Celebrate the 4th of July with this free lesson pack for teachers of Grades 4 to 7.
This lesson pack includes:
1.) A set of four printable worksheets. The worksheets feature:
a) a warm-up discussion about Independence Day
b) a short article about the history of Independence Day with little-known facts to make it interesting.
c) a short easy quiz about the article to check comprehension
d) a discussion about Independence Day for the whole class
e) a crossword puzzle that's fun and teaches some useful vocabulary
f) a writing activity that students can do in-class or for homework
The worksheets are made to be fun, interesting, and interactive. They can be used by American or non-American teachers for their class.
2) A 13-slide powerpoint that guides the teacher and the student through the worksheet activities. This is meant to help the teacher "download and go" with only minimal preparation required for the lesson.
3) a short audio (MP3) file of the worksheet article being read aloud. Great for LD or ESL/EFL learners who want to practice or mimic the natural rhythm, stress, and tone.
