Resource Pages for Observance Days



There are many school recognition days, and there are many weeks or months during the year devoted to different aspects of social studies. 

To the right are Wisconsin's official recognition days, and other days, weeks, or months that I've found resources for.  If there's a link, there's a page of resources.  

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction encourages educators to recognize people and groups throughout the year and not just on their special day or month.
