May 6 – Tourist Appreciation Day

Tourism ( all activity related to people traveling outside of where they normally live) is a billion dollar industry – and it relies on the TOURIST!

A tourist is defined as any person traveling away from what is considered their usual social environment for the purpose of conducting business, social reasons (like a wedding or family reunion) or for pleasure. In order to be classified as a tourist, a person must stay at the location for longer than 24 hours and less than one year.

Anytime you and your family have traveled and met these conditions – you were a tourist! Perhaps you have fantastic destinations in your city that attract visitors. Those visitors are tourists too! They are “touring” the city that YOU live in, just as you tour the places you visit.

Some ways you can celebrate Tourist Appreciation Day are:

Plan your dream trip – research cost, places to visit while there, etc. Present the idea to your parents for fun.

Re-visit a place you have already been by creating a photo album of the trip. Preserve the memories with a bit of writing to describe the pictures.

“Tour” somewhere new in your local area – even though it doesn’t qualify as being a true tourist, it’s always a good opportunity to see something new! Create a Travel Brochure (I have a FREE printable for you to use!) of the place you visited!

Take a Virtual Trip to the most popular tourist destination – France. Use the links in the FREE PACKET I put together for today! It is a sample of the full WORLD TRAVELER set available in my curriculum line!

The World Traveler Activity Pack contains 13 additional countries (14 total including France), the Travel Brochure, a Passport, passport stamps and an adorable Suitcase mini book!

Visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store to purchase Complete Activity Pack.

May 4 – Star Wars Day

It’s a rare thing to have an a day so widely loved that was actually started by fans! Most “wacky” holidays are promoted by people or companies with an underlying agenda. (making money, promoting their product, etc) Not May the 4th. The beloved play on words – May the 4th be with you! – Star Wars day, was started by fans out of love for all things Star Wars. The day is celebrated in community gatherings, social media events and even partnerships with stores that hold special sales. As the day grew LucasFilm and the official Star Wars social media channels help spread the news about events.

Favorite ways to celebrate include:

Hosting Movie Marathons

Dressing up as Star Wars characters and posting with #StarWarsDay to your social media

Cooking Star Wars Themed Food

These Fun Cookbooks can Help:

If you’s like to keep some Grammar lessons involved in your day – Mad Libs are a favorite in both my classroom and my homeschool settings!

Official Star Wars Day Activity Book for kids

Here at Homeschool Holiday – we went the “puntastic” route and created a set of curriculum that revolves around the puntastic part of the day – it’s name. This set keeps it basic with a standard definition of pun and some Star Wars themed jokes that rely on puns. Or you can use the advanced version and explore the difference between Homophonoic and Homographic puns.
