The Guide to Themed Studies is designed to give parents and teachers a quick way to ﬁnd a theme you can work into your day. While no guide short enough to be printed could ever cover every conceivable date or theme, there are more than 300 dates and events in this unit. They are organized in charts of:
• United States holidays
• World or International Holidays
• Historic Dates (many key war-related dates plus a hodgepodge of birthdays and other special events)
• Birthdays of Famous Inventors
• Birthdays of Famous Artists
• Birthdays of Famous Musicians/Composers
• Monthly Listings
You can use these lists when you are in a hurry and need to ﬁnd a topic for the day or for extra ﬁll-in work as needed. You can also look ahead to upcoming months and see if there are special anniversaries coming up, such as the 150th anniversary of a special event.
You can use these lists to incorporate history, science, art, music, and more into your day. Learn about world habitats on World Habitat Day, study famous artists on Pablo Picasso’s birthday, learn about the history of France on Bastille Day, and much more. Just have fun discovering forgotten moments in history!
