Memorial Day is an annual American holiday, celebrated on the last Monday of May, honoring those who died while serving in the U.S. Military. In 1971 it became a federal holiday. Many American schools observe Memorial Day in the classroom, by discussing and learning the history of this holiday.
For the occasion, we’ve created this Memorial Day lesson plan composed of fun interactive lessons that can be used with front of classroom interactive display, Chromebooks, laptops or tablets.
Those interactive lessons will keep students engaged and they’ll have fun while learning why it is important to remember and honor the ones fighting for their country.
The lessons are ready-made and meant to save teachers lesson-planning time, giving them the opportunity to make instruction fun and engaging.
Watch a video about the history of the Memorial Day, then place the events on a timeline, take the Quiz to test students knowledge, and use the Scramble and Guess lessons to discuss and learn Memorial Day vocabulary.
