National Day Calendar Classroom - February - 2021-2022 - Week 25 - Friends


National Make a Friend Day inspires this week’s Classroom. Friends are a vital part of our lives. In the classroom, our friends are often the people we see every day. Making new friends is sometimes difficult. We may be shy or don’t know what to say. This week in the classroom, we’ve created a couple of projects to help break the ice and make making friends just a little bit easier.


Download and print this week’s projects about friendship and make some new friends. You can also follow the suggestions below to help your students explore the days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!

Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:

1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.

Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
