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.

Please note:  All links to outside resources are free to public use.  Any links those sites may have to resources for purchase are not reviewed or endorsed by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
