MONDAY

JUST LEAVE A MESSAGE

So-called test cases in the first phone-hacking civil trial are scheduled to start today. The now defunct News of the World newspaper settled more than half of the 60 hacking lawsuits against it last month.

TUESDAY

BE MY VALENTINE

Traditionally, Valentine's Day is a day to romance your loved ones, though the saccharine commercialism could drive you round the bend. A resource from Runaway has themes in French and German.

WEDNESDAY

INTERNATIONAL CHILDHOOD CANCER DAY

On this day each year, countries join together to organise activities to raise awareness of children suffering from terminal illnesses. Learn more about the day with a resource from TES Web Staff.

THURSDAY

LET'S GET CLEAN

The Kyoto Protocol came into force on this day in 2005. It aims to curb the air pollution blamed for global warming. Hold your own classroom climate summit with a resource from HollyMiddleditch.

FRIDAY

HER NAME WAS LOLA (1821)

Birthday of showgirl Eliza Rosanna Gilbert, better known as Lola Montez, who became a "Spanish dancer" and mistress of King Ludwig I of Bavaria. Learn more about German and Austrian culture with MFLteacher's resource.

SATURDAY

Meaty issue

Foxes nationwide celebrated on this day in 2005 when a ban was slapped on the blood sport. (Shame no one told the foxes that chicken massacres are also unethical.) See a resource from Revisionstation.

SUNDAY

THALIDOMIDE DAMAGES (1968)

A settlement for damages was agreed in the High Court for 62 child thalidomide victims. Worldwide some 8,000 women who took thalidomide as a sedative gave birth to babies with deformities. See a resource from rainbowhunter for lessons on drug testing.
