Here are some of the historical events you may want to cover this coming week with your students:
- November 28th:
Today is Samuel Clemen's birthday. We know him better as Mark Twain. He wrote two of my favorite books:
- December 1st:
Hanukkah begins at sunset. Even if you don't celebrate Hanukkah, this is a wonderful time to learn about the holiday with your children. You could do a unit study on Hanukkah for the duration of the eight-day holiday. History.com is a good place to start.
This is also Rosa Parks' Day. 55 years ago, Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. Read more about what happened at Scholastic, where your students can read the history, do suggested learning activities, and read interviews with Rosa Parks.
If you know of any historical events (from any country) that occurred between November 28th-December 4th, please share them in the Comments section. Also, let us know if you find any good lesson plans or other resources for the above events and holidays.
