Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Halloween? What is the history behind Groundhog Day and how did this day come to be? What is the importance of Remembrance Day? ..... Well this is the unit for you!
I have combined 17 of my mini units into one complete unit for all the special days celebrated in a school year.
**This package is 283 pages of fun, writing activities and more! **
Each unit begins with a worksheet on the history/meaning behind the day being celebrated. This worksheet is differentiated for various learning levels.
There are colour vocabulary cards for each unit for your writing centre/ word wall/ literacy centres.
This unit took me a long time to complete and I am always adding pages so look for updates :)
