NATIONAL DAY CALENDAR CLASSROOM – WEEK 23 -January 27, 2019
The National Day Calendar Classroom slithers into Week 23 with National Puzzle Day and National Serpent Day. When it comes to classroom activities, puzzles challenge the mind, and National Puzzle Day is one of our favorites. Snakes fascinate and startle us all at the same time. Learning about them helps us to understand them better.
Sharing on social media isn’t required, learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
