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 has YouTube videos with historical information about the U.S. patriotic holidays.
