The Perfect Way to Teach the Queen Jubilee in the ESL Classroom!

 



What is the Queen Jubilee?
The Queen Jubilee is a ceremonial event held in the United Kingdom to mark the accession of Queen Elizabeth II. It is held every three years, on the occasion of the Queen's official birthday.


How can we teach children about the Queen Jubilee?

There are a number of fun activities that can be done to celebrate the Queen Jubilee. Here are a few ideas:
One way is to have students participate in discussion and debate about the meaning of the holiday and what it represents for different people.
After that show them pictures of her, or videos of her if you can find any. You can tell them about her life and how long she has been queen. If you know any interesting facts about her, share those as well. You can also find books about her at the library, or look online for websites that are geared towards children and teach them about the Queen Jubilee.
Additionally, students could create art or writing about the Queen Jubilee, or take part in activities that celebrate British culture.

More ideas:
-A brief history of the Queen Jubilee and her reign.
