PATRIOTIC MOVIES FOR KIDS
I love incorporating videos into our lessons and activities whenever possible. They’re a great way to break from the books and worksheets that typically fill our lessons.
I also save them for rainy days or sick days that may crop up during the unit. Here are a few fun ideas for kids:
• This is America, Charlie Brown – From the voyage of the Mayflower to the bold exploration of outer space, join the Peanuts gang as they take you on a timeless journey through American history!
• Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero – A stray dog joins his master on the battlefields of World War I in this fact-based animated story.
• We Sign Patriotic Songs – Features American Patriotic songs that are not only sung, but are also performed with American Sign Language, ASL.
We hope you have a wonderful Independence Day, surrounded by family and friends, enjoying all the festivities and traditions that make this holiday so special.
And most importantly, we hope you take some time to read some of these great patriotic books with your kids!
