    Description

    Learning about our country can be fun, and can practice other important skills as well. These activities are great for any patriotic holiday: Constitution Day, Election Day, Veterans Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, or Independence Day. These activities also work well any time of year you want the children to learn more about their country.

    Why use this resource? People need novelty to keep life interesting. They can be taught about their country with lectures and "busy work," or they can play games and do fun activities to learn about their country as well as practice other important skills like reading, math, and writing! Research proves the latter is more conducive to learning!

    How it works: I've put together this bundle full of activities to learn about the USA, and help primary students celebrate their country while practicing important skills. It contains mapping activities, a voting and graphing activity, informational reading about holidays and armed services, a game to practice common and proper nouns with an election theme, several Presidents Day activities, two types of writing paper, and patriotic brain breaks!

    BOOM Cards are easy for the teacher and fun for the children! These can be played on computers or tablets, give immediate feedback to the children, and detailed data for the teacher.

Boom Cards play on modern browsers (released in the last three years) on interactive whiteboards, computers, or tablets. Boom Cards apps are also available. Not sure if your browser is modern enough?
