This page is about Independence Day! The 14 worksheets are primarily about Independence Day in the United States but many other countries celebrate their independence too so, if possible, relate the topic to a holiday your students may be familiar with. This article about Independence Day would be perfect for a class of intermediate students. There is some useful information that you may choose to read aloud or ask your students to read and you can use this material as the basis for a worksheet. Students may not know all the words used in the passage so you could pre-teach new words, elicit definitions if you think students might know some of them, or use this lesson to have students practice using their dictionaries. Whatever you decide, students will appreciate the cultural lesson as a break from their textbook. There are other worksheets available in this section too so have a look at them before deciding which one you would like to use for class.

What Is Independence Day?
An Independence Day is an annual celebration commemorating the anniversary of a nation's assumption of independent statehood, usually after ceasing to be a colony or part of another nation or state, and more rarely after the end of a military occupation. Most countries observe their respective independence day as a national holiday, and in some cases the observance date is controversial or contested. Not all countries observe an independence day holiday. Some observe other national days either instead of or in addition to an independence day.
