The August calendar has loads of special days! The following list is made up of August’s holidays, observances, food themes, awareness days , famous birthdays, science and historic based anniversaries, and more. So, if you want an occasion to celebrate, pick up some trivia, or add foods to your menu, this is the right place for you. And, of course you’ll find multiple opportunities for “on the calendar” themed studies for your classroom, homeschool, co-op/support group, or club.
Resources for teaching throughout the month, including a free PDF of Special Days in August, can be found at the end of this list.
