Today, I’m sharing my calendar of August themed activities for kids. You’ll find all my unit studies and holiday posts listed by themes in my “Should You Use Unit Studies?” post. Here you’ll find lots of themes for August according to holiday or calendar observances.

You’ll find more links for calendar observances in my “Enliven Your Homeschool with Some Calendar Fun” post. The post has links to resources for calendar observances for any level. I’m especially focusing here on August themes for preschoolers through early elementary, although I’ve added some calendar observances for pre-teens and teens.

Note: Be sure to click the images in my Memetales photo collage. You’ll go to the post containing the image!
