Celebrating Independence Day

Every year, most Americans celebrate the 4th of July or Independence Day with family and friends and fireworks.  How many actually realize what they are celebrating?  I try and make it a point to let K know why we are celebrating every Independence Day.  A refresher of sorts.  This 4th, she is a bit older and better able to understand so we are doing more.  Below are some of the things we plan on doing together as a family with links:

  1. Learning the history of Independence Day
  2. Reading the Declaration of Independence 
  3. Reviewing Lapbook on the topic
  4. Worksheets on the symbols, flags, etc.
  5. Singing (learning for her) patriotic songs
  6. Celebrating - rejoicing in our freedom in the USA!

If anyone has anymore links, please share.  I'm especially looking for a Christian-view of American history for a separate study this coming year.
