All month long in March is Women’s History Month and National Irish-American Heritage Month( since 1995).
Did you ever wonder how the months of the year got their names? Well some of them came from Roman and Greek mythology. The month of March is named after the Roman God Mars, who was the God of War. I will post some links below for you to check out about the special days in March. There will also be some fun learning activities that you can do at home . See you soon!
