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 sacrificed 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.
