Use a calendar to identify the date and determine the number of days in each month (ACMMG041)
LO: To use a calendar to identify the date and to determine the number of days in each month.
the months of the year
the days of the week
that we use calendars to keep track of the date and the number of days each month as well as to record important events in history.
there are 12 calendar months in a year and that each month is made up of approximately four weeks, and are usually 30 days long.
the calender also operates in a cycle (month-to-month then year-to-year).
I use a calendar to identify the date and identify important points in history.
Calendars are a device used to measure the year, dividing it into days, weeks and months.
We use calendars to help us identify the day of the year.
A calendar usually has the months in order and goes from 1st of the month to the last day of the month (28th/29th/30th/31st).
Calendars are also used to record events in the natural world such as tides, lunar cycles and seasons.
Months usually have 30 or 31 days depending on the month except for February which only has 28 or 29 days (depending on if it is a leap year or not).
A leap year is a special year every 4 years where we have an extra day.
One neat trick to help count the number of days in a month is using your knuckles.
If it is a “knuckles” month it has 31 days, if it is a “gap” month it will have 30 days (except February).
