These Memorial Day classroom activities for second through fifth grade are a great way to build awareness of this meaningful holiday while giving students a chance to use their reading, writing, and research skills. This choice board is flexible enough to be used in class or as a remote learning resource.

Students can choose from reading and writing activities like:

We Remember You

Thank a Veteran
