Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month


The Share My Lesson team has highlighted free K-12 lesson plans, videos and activities to use with your students to learn about and celebrate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month in May. 

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.
