The following worksheets contain activities related to events, holidays, and other notable days in each month.

How Did the Months of the Year Get Their Name? We have different methods of measuring time. Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, dates, years, and even months! We know that there are 12 months in a year, but do you know where they got their names from? Let's take a look, shall we! Like most of the things that have been handed down to own from our ancestors, most of the names of the months are the creations of the Romans and Greeks! Here's a fun fact! Did you know that before a proper calendar was created, the Romans year started with March and ended in February! How weird is that! Thankfully, today our calendar goes the right way around! Let's see where each month got its name from: January gets its name from the Roman God, Janus. February got its name from after an ancient Roman festival of purification called Februa. The month of March is named after the Roman God, Mars. April is originated from the Latin word, aperire, which means ‘to open.' May is named after the Greek Goddess, Maia. June got its name from the Roman God, Juno. The months of July and August are named after the Roman empire's most renowned statesman, Julius Caesar, and their first emperor, Augustus. September, October, November, and December get their names from the Roman numbers 7, 8, 9, and 10. Isn't that wonderful!

A huge set of worksheets that tie-in with each calendar month of the year. They are organized below in chronological order for you to print! Three hundred sixty-five days are not enough to give every historical memorial, awareness campaign, birthday celebration, holiday, and traditional event their own day (leap years don't even help), so each month is packed end to end with commemorations and festivities from around the world. These worksheet sets contain many different types of activities-such as reading short passages, crossword puzzles, checklists, and more-highlighting particular events of note in each month. We recommend using these worksheets each and every month where you would like to add some excitement in your class.
