NATIONAL DAY CALENDAR CLASSROOM – Week 14 – December 10 – 16, 2017
In the National Day Calendar Classroom, Bill of Rights Day and National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day on December 15 give us a chance to learn about our government while having a little fun.
Bill of Rights Day
The Bill of Rights consists of a preamble, the first 10 amendments, and 17 additional amendments.
The National Constitution Center provides outstanding resources for all grade levels. Find lesson plans, worksheets, and teacher materials to fit your needs.
National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day
See if your students can come up with the ugliest sweater from an old, worn sweater or one designed to be an ugly sweater. No good clothing allowed! Remind your students that just like beauty, the vision of these sweaters is in the eye of the beholder.
As an alternative, print out a coloring page of a sweater for children to embellish and create their own version of an ugly sweater to take home.
