Arizona Ed’s Activity Calendar

Arizona Ed made this calendar to keep track of favorite events that he wants
to remember from year to year. View the calendar below to find local events
of interest for each month. These are traditionally held around the same time annually, so you may plan ahead for this year or the next. Field trips provide lessons in history, geography, culture, science, environment, and much more! You can also click on the name of each month to find holidays, historic events, famous birthdays, special days and other occasions. These provide unit study ideas and timely topics to write about for every day of the year. Have fun!
