Each May in the United States, we celebrate Asian-Pacific Heritage Month. The term "Asia-Pacific" includes the entire Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. The celebration of Asian-Pacific Heritage Month actually began as a shorter, 10 day celebration in 1977, however President George H.W. Bush expanded it to a month-long commemoration in 1992. The Share My Lesson team has highlighted some free lesson plans, worksheets and activities to help teachers celebrate Asian-Pacific Heritage Month in their classrooms.
