Spanish 4th of July activities

These photos of the American flag are a fun way to speak with Spanish with kids as the United States gets ready to celebrate Independence Day. You can use them for activities like these:

– Read the descriptions and find the picture that is being described.
– Take turns describing a picture and guessing which picture is being described.
– Teachers can project the pictures onto a whiteboard and use them as a tic-tac-toe board. Teams tell teachers where they would like it put their mark by describing the photo.
– Count the total number of flags in the pictures. (There are 19.)
