This Monday Americans will celebrate Memorial Day. Who are we honoring? How did the holiday come about? Isn't Memorial Day usually later in May?
Students learn a little about the history of the holiday, analyze the possibilities for when it is celebrated, and study the incredible numbers of deaths and casualties that have been caused by war. While trying to make conclusions and observations about the numbers they can't help but appreciate the terrible cost of war and the gift that those that serve in the military have given us and our country.
For members we have an editable Word doc and solutions.
