We are so excited to join some bloggy friends to bring you lots of fun ideas and July 4th celebrations!
Speaking of 4th of July celebrations….the BIRTHDAY of our country! I feel so blessed to have spent last week in the city of Philadelphia following the footsteps of the birth of our nation.
As teachers, we tell children we can travel anywhere by reading books. We also know that hands-on learning is the best. Well, I can’t tell you enough how AWESOME it was to visit the REAL places and things I have read about all my life! It just makes all the history so real!!! We need to really keep this in mind when teaching our children!
Here are some of the pictures I took. Enjoy looking and then download the freebie as our thanks for visiting and to help say, “Happy Birthday America!” Then be sure to enter the rafflecopters for some great prizes. The second rafflecopter is one for FOUR lucky people on the FOURTH of July to win up to $10.00 of digital products from our TpT store, The Fun Factory!!
|PS…Washington did not sit there during the signing of the Declaration. It was later.
|The Liberty Bell is a symbol of freedom for people all over the world! This is the side with the infamous crack.
|It isn’t for sure that Betsy Ross made our first flag. However, there are many things written that indicate it was a strong possibility. Whatever the case may be, it is amazing this little house has been preserved since the 1700’s!!
And as an added bonus, all of the participating bloggers have ‘pooled their cash’ to purchase 4 $25 TpT gift certificates and 1 $10 Target gift card!
