National Day Calendar Classroom - October - 2021-2022 - Week 11 - Reptile


How many classrooms out there have a terrarium with a reptile as the class pet? National Reptile Awareness Day is the perfect time to learn more about them! Whether it’s a snake, turtle or lizard, these creatures have been around a long time. There are thousands of species of reptiles, too! This week, the Classroom offers several projects to help you explore the reptile.


Download and print this week’s projects and discover a little bit about reptiles. 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.


This week’s projects create discussion and encourage creativity and explorations.
