November 1st is significant this year because of the Time Change. Going from daylight saving time and back and forth is an event to add to calendar discussion. This package includes answer key, multiple approaches to complete the lesson depending on the age of your students.
As part of diversity and understanding of the people we share our planet with. I did a month by month study into different cultures around the world. To help with this unit I used the following books:
Imagine a Day by: Sarah L. Thomson
Imagine a Night by: Sarah L. Thomson
What the Sun See’s / What the Moon See’s By: Nancy Tafuri
Or any such books dealing with time.
Each month on the day or as close as possible I would read the book or any other appropriate book and complete the follow up paper. We then would put the paper into our portfolio. Also I used these events as part of the timeline in my room in which any and all important events were added. At times even pictures where available were placed on the time line.
