We live in an amazing world, a world full of people who love to celebrate. Whether it is a birthday or graduation, Christmas or Flag Day, we have an excuse to break from the norm and enjoy life. History of Holidays in America is a course designed for elementary and middle school students that takes a look at the historical and social background of more than twenty American holidays: legal holidays as well as other holidays, celebrations, and commemorations. Each chapter includes vocabulary words related to that holiday, the background of the holiday or celebration, and information about how people honor the day. Besides holidays, we can celebrate the wide variety of people in this world and learn about our own significant contribution to the world through Kindergarten Social Studies. Sabrina Scheerer provides a weekly printable lesson plan with suggested activities. Over the course of thirty-four weeks, children will gain a greater understanding of the world around them and how they interact with it. Topics include hygiene, rules, home and neighborhood, Earth’s resources, oceans, continents, pet care, and problem solving, to name a few.
