Word Bank Challenge
This worksheet is designed to engage students with Memorial Day, helping them understand its significance and encouraging them to participate in its observance. At the top, there is a space for the student to write their name, personalizing their work. The sheet is clearly titled “Memorial Day” and provides a brief description, stating that Memorial Day is the last Monday in May and is a national holiday to remember the brave individuals who have died while serving their country.
Below the description, a word bank includes terms such as “remember,” “appreciate,” “flowers,” “parade,” “flag,” and “cemetery,” which can be used to understand and discuss the holiday’s traditions and customs. At the bottom, students are prompted to write about how they will celebrate Memorial Day, allowing them to reflect on the holiday’s meaning and consider ways to show their respect and honor for fallen service members. This exercise is ideal for fostering a sense of historical understanding and civic responsibility among young learners.
