The following worksheets contain activities relating to events celebrated in the month of June.

June is the sixth month of the modern-day Gregorian calendar, coming after January, February, March, April, and May. There are 30 days in the month of May. The month of June earned its name from the Roman Goddess, Juno, the wife of Jupiter. Juno is the goddess of marriage and childbirth and is equivalent to the Greek goddess Hera. Some people also believe that June's name is derived from the Latin word iuniores, meaning 'younger ones.' Previously, June was the fourth month in the earlier versions of the Roman calendar, having 30 days. Later, it became the fifth month with a length of 29 days. After Julius Caesar reformed the calendar in 450 BCE, June gained the sixth position and a length of 30 days again. June is usually associated with luck for couples to get married in this month. The birthstones June are pearl, moonstone, and Alexandrite, all symbolizing health and longevity. The birth flowers for June are rose and the honeysuckle. Celebrate World Environment Day on June 5, and make efforts to learn how to be better stewards of our planet. The next day commemorates the anniversary of the 1944 Normandy landings, a joint Allied operation to liberate northwestern Europe from Nazi control during World War 2. On a lighter note, you can grab a doughnut on National Doughnut Day, observed on the first Friday in June, and if you eat too many doughnuts, International Yoga Day is on the twenty-first.

The worksheets below are all themed on celebrations or events that take place during the month of June. While it is observed on many different dates around the world, the vast majority of countries celebrate Father's Day some time in June.
