BRIEF OUTLINE: A simple matching worksheet to show what Americans eat for the Fourth of July. 

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Using a visual of the foods from the worksheet, ask, "What's this?" Encourage them to answer using "It's ~."
  2. When the students have become comfortable and memorized the new vocabulary and key phrase, distribute the worksheet.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • My class is advanced so I asked, "What else do we eat?" I helped them along by asking things like, "Do we eat sushi?"

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • You may need to change the worksheet to fit your traditions.
  • I made deviled eggs for my teachers so my JTE was able to help me talk about deviled eggs.  

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • This was one part of a large lesson. We also talked about parades and fireworks. The lesson was broken down by time of day: morning parades, afternoon parties (food), and night fireworks. I showed a video for the fireworks that the kids loved.
