Independence Day always marks an important part of summer in the U.S. Even though the holiday is on July 4th, you can focus on patriotic activities the whole month if you wish.
I’m featuring some great posts from Montessori bloggers with ideas to use for the 4th of July in the U.S. and for a patriotic unit in general. You can adapt the ideas for your country’s major holiday or holidays if you live in another country.
Free American Patriotic Songs and Rhymes for Circle Time (update from 2015) has YouTube videos with historical information about the U.S. patriotic holidays.
4th of July Preschool and Kindergarten Free Printable Pack from Our Country Road (with a number of patriotic language and math activities and examples of how to put them on trays)
Celebrating American Independence Day and Independence Day and Cosmic Education in the Montessori Classroom from North American Montessori Center
Montessori-Inspired Activities Teaching about Money and Presidents (my Presidents’ Day post with ideas that would work for any patriotic holiday)
Free Patriotic Songs and Rhymes for Circle Time (my post with lots of educational videos about specific patriotic holidays as well as lots of patriotic songs for a variety of ages)
Do you have any educational 4th of July activities planned?
