America's Special Days is a series designed to be used in lower elementary
grades to support teachers in helping students understand and appreciate why we
celebrate certain days commonly referred to as "holidays".
This popular series utilizes an interdisciplinary approach that combines language
arts, science, math, and fine art topics into a social studies framework.
Vivid, exciting locations and warm scenes of family celebrations illustrate the
colorful narrative. Each 15-minute program features one holiday, its history, its
meaning, and how Americans celebrate it.
