Holiday History:

Historical information on how Father’s Day was established as a national holiday in the United States.

Lesson Points To Cover:

  • What does Father’s Day mean to you?
  • Who is your father? (biological, adopted, step, father figure, etc)
  • What names do we use for our fathers? (Father, Dad, Daddy, their proper name, a nickname)
  • What is the role of a father (parent, role model, provider, teacher, care taker, friend, etc.)
  • Ways you communicate with your father (serious, funny, silly, doing things for each other, etc)
  • How do you celebrate Father’s Day?

Activity: Ask the child what is their favorite thing about their father. Help them write or create a Father’s Day card that reflects that. Also, help them come up with special things he/she can do to show their father how special he is on Father’s Day. This will give them a chance to think about and have things in mind so when the day comes, they can play an active role in the festivities.
