June 2014 Calendar Observances and ActivitiesThis post contains calendar observances and themed activities for June 2014. If you’d like an updated calendar for any year, you can find it in my June Themed Activities for Kids. This calendar is different because the calendar observances with changing dates are added into the list of June dates, making it less likely that you’ll miss an event.

I love using unit studies and themed activities for holidays and calendar observances. You’ll find all my unit studies and holiday posts in my “Should You Use Unit Studies?” post. You might choose to plan unit studies based on your child’s interests. Many unit studies, such as a dinosaur unit or transportation unit, work well at any time of the year.

Some unit studies naturally fit best into specific seasons or months. And many others can be used at any time but are extra fun when combined with a holiday or calendar observance.

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 mainly focus here on June themes for preschoolers through early elementary, although you’ll find calendar observances here for any age.

Monthly Observances for June

Monthly observances can be used for themed activities throughout the month or for one or two weeks during the month.
