This amazing interactive resource from www.projectbritain.com is like an advent calendar with an educational twist for each day of the year. Every day of the year has a picture and when you click on it it reveals facts and information about a special event, famous person or celebration related to that day.
You could use it to act as a discussion starter every day, or could delve a bit deeper by having your child pick a day each week they want to do a further project on. Print out the calendar so that your child can look ahead at the topics to come – perhaps you can discuss what you think tomorrow’s fact will be based on the picture.
Why not have your child create their own calendar with facts about them and their family and friends. You could start with the obvious birthdays, christmasses etc. but could also look back at old photos and cross-reference the dates with big events they remember from previous years.
