In honor of Memorial Day, I created a few activity pages for the kids to do on Monday in observance of the holiday. Please enjoy the day and remember to reflect upon the meaning. Some other ideas:
- Stop at a local nursing home or veteran facility and have kids play a game with some of the war veterans. A quick conversation while playing Checkers or Bingo could really brighten a day for an honorable someone.
- Have kids record a video recording thanking the troops for our freedoms. Upload it and email to an overseas unit.
- Go on a mini-field trip in your hometown. Look for things to take photos of that describe the following vocab words: honor, memorial, Old Glory, freedom, patriotic
Below are also some great book links you might also want to check out (keep in mind that Flag Day will also soon be upon us). Below the books list is also three-pack of free worksheets for you to use as you please.
Have a great holiday everyone and make sure to appreciate all those who have made our freedoms a reality!
