Calendar Connections ~ The Arctic and Antarctica

Pin It

My wonderful friend Shannon is still working with me to create the Calendar Connections cards. She is a fellow inner city missionary with me and also a homeschooler {and former school teacher}.

We chose the theme of The Arctic & Antarctica for January! Good chilly fun!Arctic and Antarctica Calendar Connections

The facts are written at a 3-6th grade level but you will be able to water them down for younger kids. It’s a great way to involve your entire family in exploring a particular theme. 


The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar {which is from Oriental Trading}, item # IN-62/2017.

but you could use a poster foam board and velcro to easily create your own set up. You could also use a standard pocket chart. They seem like they would fit in this calendar on Amazon but I am not certain.


I am now creating smaller sets to go along with the small pocket charts found recently in the Target $1 section. Here is what they look like… Calendar Connections Small Arctic and Antarctica2

Calendar Connections ~ Thanksgiving

My wonderful friend Shannon is still working with me to create the Calendar Connections cards. She is a fellow inner city missionary with me and also a homeschooler {and former school teacher}.

We chose the obvious theme of Thanksgiving for November ~ but filled with Biblical history and interesting facts that your children {or you} may not know!  I sure learned a lot!

Calendar Connections ~ Explorers

My wonderful friend Shannon is still working with me to create the Calendar Connections cards. She is a fellow inner city missionary with me and also a homeschooler {and former school teacher}. She has 4 kiddos ages 1, 6, 12, and 14. She wrote the facts for this set and I created the final file, it was a total team effort! In order to help support their missionary family, all books linked in the file and in the Amazon widgets are linked to her account. If you make a purchase through those links you will be supporting their family!!!

We chose an Explorer theme for October ~ just to switch things up a bit.

The facts are written at a 3-6th grade level but you will be able to water them down for younger kids. It’s a great way to involve your entire family in exploring a particular theme.  This particular theme may be a bit harder to water down, but you’ll have to be the judge based on your kiddos!  Without any cute animal pictures, the younger crowd may have a harder time connecting to the exciting facts.

On the first card, Shannon challenges the kids to find places on a map or atlas as they learn about each discovery.  Slide4I think this is an awesome idea and will make this unit not only a lesson on Explorers but also a great geography lesson.
