Our fun Calendar and Dates lesson plan introduces students to the significance and components of a calendar. During this lesson, students are asked to create their own calendar with a creative project in which they list important dates for their family and create a full year calendar, complete with drawings, images, and more. Students are also asked to look at a calendar page and answer questions about it to test their understanding of how to use one.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and identify all aspects of a yearly and monthly calendar.
