Annual Holidays and Special Days in July

Hi! This is Meghan Lynn Allen for About.com, and today we'll discuss special days and annual holidays in July.

Independence Day Is an Important Annual Holiday in July

Kick off the month of July celebrating Independence Day, commonly known as July 4th. That's the day across the United States that we commemorate the signing, the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which happened way back in 1776.

Tips for Teaching Independence Day to Homeschoolers

Celebrate this day with your home-schooled students with crafts. Do some printout coloring pages of the Founding Fathers themselves, and you can attach on the back some facts about that Founding Father that they can study for a quiz later that week.

You can also print out a copy of the Declaration of Independence, and right under the signatures of the Founding Fathers, you can have your students sign their signatures themselves.

Canada's Birthday Is a Special Day in July

And though America's birthday may be celebrated on July 4th, Canada's birthday is celebrated on July 1st. So, while you're doing some printouts for your kids, be sure to print out a Canadian Flag that they can color in.

Chocolate Day Is a Fun Special Day in July

And have a little fun on July 7th with Chocolate Day. That's right -- not only can you teach a lesson about the history of chocolate, its ingredients, the differences between milk and dark chocolate, which countries it comes from and who does the most exporting, but you can also have a little fun tasting the chocolate. You can wrap up this lesson in a nice little candy bar wrapper.

The First Moon Landing Is a Special Day in July

1969. That's when man first set foot on the moon. You can take this time to talk about not only that moon landing, but every moon landing since then and the Apollo space program. You can use a printout of the moon's surface to talk about where we landed in the past, as well as the future of the space program.
