May 2024 Products

National Space Day, observed on the first Friday of May, this year falling on May 3rd, provides a perfect opportunity to ignite curiosity and creativity among students. While we may not journey to outer space to celebrate, space offers endless inspiration for engaging activities. Many students wonder what lies beyond our skies. Encourage students to learn about space through activities like drawing rockets and astronauts. Writing a story about a trip to space and illustrating it with newly acquired drawing skills is a wonderful way to mark this special day. 

National Space Day is a perfect opportunity to take some time to talk about humans' role in the universe. Maybe we are not as important as we like to think. There are many secrets out there waiting to be uncovered! And space is also a wonderful source of inspiration for storytelling. “May the 4th  Be With You” is an awesome opportunity to explore modern fairy tales. Star Wars Day is a day when you celebrate the  Star Wars series. This day has been observed since 1999, it allows us to indulge in celebrating fiction and inspires an appreciation for storytelling and exploration of the universe.

May brings opportunities to celebrate and learn about some of nature's remarkable creatures. On May 20, World Bee Day highlight the crucial role of bees as pollinators. As the bee population faces threats, this day emphasizes the importance of protecting bees and other vital pollinators like bats, butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds. Bees play a significant role in maintaining biodiversity, food security, and sustainable agriculture, making them indispensable to humanity. Engage your students in discovering the fascinating world of bees through educational activities using a fact booklet and bee-themed crafts to honor these essential insects.

A fact booklet is also perfect for celebrating the popular Sea Turtle Day - May 23rd.  This day is an opportunity to celebrate and teach students about the importance of protecting sea turtles and their disappearing habitats around the world. 

The month of May can feel like the beginning of summer so students may already be thinking about summer vacation so you may need something special for a project. A fascinating creature to explore is one of the largest and also most ferocious reptiles - the alligator. Celebrate National Alligator Day, May 29, with engaging activities about the lizards that have existed for over 35 million years. Alligators play a crucial role in wetland ecosystems by regulating the populations of various species and contributing to ecosystem balance. Explore the rich history and significance of alligators, which are native to only a couple of regions worldwide, including the United States, Mexico, and China.
