Podcast: 4th of July
The 4th of July is Independence Day in the US. In today’s mini-podcast, English learners discover the history of the Declaration of Independence. They also learn the expression “sign your John Hancock”, and disover some fun facts about the American flag. This podcast is an audio preview of our ready-made Holiday lesson plan. The July 4th lesson plan comes with vocabulary review, a reading, comprehension questions, pair activity, idiom practice, and discussion questions. Preview all of ESL-Library’s Holidaylessons here.
