March 15 – Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Birthday

Today marks the birth of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Brooklyn, New York—an inspirational figure synonymous with the battle for women’s rights. Graduating at the top of her class at Columbia Law School in 1959, her epic career paved the way for a long tenure on the US Supreme Court, beginning in 1993. During her 27 years on the bench, she continued to fight against gender discrimination and inspired countless women around the world. 

March 19 – First Day of Spring

For our friends in the Midwest and Northeast especially, I’m sure this day can’t come soon enough. While the “feeling” of Spring is a little less predictable, the season officially begins the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator. Get your students excited about longer days and warmer weather with some of our Spring based Units. I suggest Units such as Flowers, Bees, Birds, Plants, or Butterflies for some fun reading. 

March 23 – National Puppy Day

From wet noses to a wagging tail, few things feel better after a long school day than finding your devoted, loving four-legged friend at the door. Since you probably can’t bring your own pup into the classroom, consider doing so digitally! In our Dogs Unit, students will learn more about man’s best friend and why they mean so much to us humans!
