Ideas for student tasks:
Ideas for additional student / whole-class tasks:
A great idea is to get different students and classes to focus on different months as a project at the start of the school year, then share the completed calendar afterwards. Alternatively, each month could be produced separately as it approaches and the events then used for classroom discussion points or the basis of displays and debates.
Note: all anniversaries will be limited to multiples of 50 years (e.g. 100 years ago today, 150 years ago today, etc).
