  2. 2. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ January 1st: January is named after Janus Janus was the Roman god of gates and doors, and was shown with two heads facing in opposite directions. January is a time for looking forward (to the new year) without forgetting about the past year. What things from last year would you like to repeat? (behaviors, activities, etc.)? OR What things from last year would you like to be sure not to repeat this year?
  3. 3. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ January 2nd: Cigarette advertising banned from television Tobacco is the leading preventable cause of death. Cigarette advertisements have been banned from television since the 1970s, but still exist in magazines and billboard ads. Should some products not be advertised any- where? When should advertising be limited, and how (for example, by medium –such as television, radio, newspapers, magazines, or by time of broadcast) if at all?
  4. 4. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ January 3rd: January’s birthstones are amethysts and garnets Imagine that you are the owner of a jewelry store. During the month of January, you want to sell rings with one of the month‟s birthstones. Write a script for a commercial on the radio, describing what your ring looks like and persuading people to buy it.
  5. 5. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ January 4th: Trivia Day Trivia are unimportant things…but knowing a lot of trivia can be a lot of fun! And- what may seem trivial to one person could be very important to someone else. Can you think of something that is important to you that someone else might consider “mere trivia”?
  6. 6. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ January 5th: National Bird Day Imagine that your name is Professor Ima Birdwatcher. Your job is to travel all over the world, teaching people about birds. Today you are talking to the Little Litterbug Club about why it is important to the birds that humans not litter. Write the text of your speech here.
  7. 7. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ January 6th: St. Nicholas's Feast Day The story of St. Nicholas probably began in Turkey in the 4 century. There are many different stories about him, and nobody knows which stories are true (maybe he gave money to three girls so that they could get married maybe he saved children maybe.). In all of the stories, he was a generous man. St. Nicholas is still known today in different countries by different names: in England he is called Father Christmas, in France he is Pere Noël, in Germany he is Weinachtsman, and he is called Sinterklass in Holland. In the 1600s, Sinterklass emigrated (with Dutch colonists) to America, where he became Santa Claus. What do you know about St. Nicholas? Write a report about what you know.
  8. 8. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ January 7th: Harlem Globetrotter's Day What do you know about the Harlem Globetrotters? Have you ever seen them perform? What do they do? How do you think they got their name? Would you like to be a Harlem Globetrotter? Why or why not?
