This is a neat site I ran across today with calendar activities for classroom use.
It's by ReadWriteThink, which it you haven't checked out their site, I recommend giving it some time!
Here is the description from the calendar activities site:
Not your everyday calendar, here you can find important events in literary history, authors' birthdays, and a variety of holidays, all with related activities and resources that make them more relevant to students. View by day, by week, or by month.
This could be used to share a fact each day with your students or have a student research the site on interesting things that happened during the week in history to "report" back to the class. Students could also research things that happen on their birthday.
Have other ideas on using this site? Post a comment so everyone can benefit! :)
