Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday in May. Incorporate our printables, lessons, and references across your curriculum to honor the men and women who have sacrified their lives in American wars. Patriotic art activities are a fun way for students to help decorate the classroom for this civic holiday. You will find resources and literature on heroes, heroines, and historic battles to help educate your class about wartime service.
Teaching Racism & Discrimination in America
The issues of racism, prejudice, and discrimination have plagued the United States since it was founded, and racially motivated killings still occur with frequency today. Help your students understand the historical contexts of racism—with references on slavery, immigration, and the civil rights movement—to frame your conversation on modern instances of prejudice.
