Let children learn about calendars by looking at old calendars and creating new ones. Tear the pages of an old calendar apart. Divide children into 12 groups and have each pick one of the old calendar pages. Have each group create a new calendar page for that month. Provide current calendars to assist students in correctly numbering the calendar squares.
Have students note special school days, holidays, birthdays, and so on. On the reverse of each calendar page, have students create art for the following month’s calendar page (When the calendar is hung, the reverse of one calendar page becomes the art for the next page.) The group doing January will do two pieces of art—one for January and one for February. Put the pages together to make a new class calendar.
