3 Ways to Celebrate Universal Children’s Day in the Classroom
Happy Universal Children’s Day! Each year on November 20, we celebrate Universal Children’s Day, joining people from around the country and world to promote togetherness and awareness among children worldwide.
Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and commemorates the UN General Assembly’s adoption of the declaration and convention of children’s rights. Since we’re dedicated to promoting children’s academic success for Pre-K, handwriting, and keyboarding, we’re uniquely celebrating Universal Children’s Day with different activities for our curricula.
