This Headline Story encourages children to apply what they know about time on a calendar. You may want to ask questions such as, “How many days away is July 4?” or “Is July 4 more than a month or less than a month away?” Use a calendar to help children complete this Headline Story. Children might identify the amount of time until July 4 using months, weeks, and days, or they might figure out the number of weeks and days, or just the number of days.
Independence Day is July 4. It is not very far away.
