What a remarkable accomplishment for Queen Elizabeth II!
Today, September 9 2015, marks the 63rd year of reign of the United Kingdom.
As this post goes live, it will be the beginning of the 64th year.
I pulled together some of the reading that I’d done about the celebration. In the classroom, what an opportunity for discussion about governance and an opportunity to compare the rest of the world and its changes over the past 63 years. How about students creating their own timeline or infographic?
