## Description

Learners will count down the days to a special event. How much longer? Calendars, dates, and units of time mean much more when you're anticipating a special event. Locate the date you?re waiting for on the calendar. Younger learners can keep track of how many days. Older learners can count down the hours, minutes, and even seconds as the time draws near. Or, challenge a multi-age group to find as many ways as they can to express the amount of time left (32 days, 4 weeks and 4 days, 1 month and 1 day..). Make this a routine: Each time you gather the group, check the countdown. Available as a web page and downloadable pdf. Less
