Heritage Day is celebrated on the third Monday in February. This day was established as a day in which we can appreciate our cultures, customs and traditions.
Discuss places where students can visit to find out about their heritage; why it is important to restore old historical buildings; ways we can preserve things from the past.
Your students may bring in an artifact that has been handed down in the family and explain why.
Stories can be written about:
Illustrations may be made of historic buildings in the community.
Plan to take your students to visit a historical building, museum, art gallery etc. on Heritage Day.
Your students will enjoy researching and completing their own family tree.
