Memorial Day Activities for Kids—
Memorial Day is one week from today. This is an important time for Americans to remember our veterans and those who have served our country. It is also an opportunity to honor those loved ones who have gone before us.
On Memorial Day, as students remember our veterans and those who have passed away, help them tap into their feelings around service and honor.
Of course, being a HUGE fan of kids journaling, I hope that journal writing is one Memorial Day activity that you will certainly have your students do.
Teachers and Parents consider this:
Journaling can help students understand this holiday from a deeper perspective.
To honor our nation’s veterans, consider having your kids do at least one — if not many — of the following activities.

Until next time, journal on…
