This PowerPoint presentation has one slide for each day of the month of January. Each slide has a short paragraph with information about a holiday or event from history on that date. The events are primarily focused on U.S. history and holidays but a few are related to world history.
The language is written in simplified English for English language learners, aimed at intermediate-level learners.
This is a great way to spark discussion in class and to help students learn a little bit about U.S. history every day. It's a great daily warm-up activity for an ELL Social Studies class or for any ESL class.
