This Labor Day worksheet offers an educational activity that focuses on vocabulary skills by asking students to arrange words related to the holiday in alphabetical order.

The exercise is not only practical for learning alphabetical ordering but also serves as a springboard for discussions on the history and significance of Labor Day. Completing the activity provides a foundation for understanding the contributions of workers and the labor movement to American history and society. This worksheet is a simple yet effective tool for teachers to integrate into their Labor Day curriculum.
