Marks, Diana F.
With this ready-reference and resource, educators can make every day a holiday for their students--from January 1 to December 31. This book, for grades K-12, is organized chronologically and lists holidays and multicultural events from around the world for every day of the year--historic happenings, birthdays, famous firsts, inventions, and other material--along with at least three activities based on the significant events of each day. Background information is provided on calendars, and includes numerous addresses, Web sites, and resources for further information. School librarians and teachers can use this book as a daily activity guide, rainy day resource, or idea source for the bulletin board or substitute folder. Public librarians can use it to develop program activities. Contains an index. (AEF)
