Podcast: Victoria Day

Holidays: Victoria Day

Victoria Day is celebrated annually in Canada on the last Monday before May 25th. It celebrates Queen Victoria’s birthday. In Canada, this holiday is often thought of as the unofficial beginning of summer.  The long-weekend is affectionately known as “May Two-Four”.

Learn some brief history about Queen Victoria and this Canadian holiday through today’s mini-podcast. This podcast is an audio preview of the reading from our NEW lesson plan. The Victoria Day lesson plan comes with vocabulary review, a reading, comprehension questions, pair work, and a family tree activity. Students do a little research in order to compare three famous Victorias.

Coming soon…Memorial Day.
