Memorial Day Curriculum Ideas

For a great memorial day event, and to help even young children understand memories and memorial day, we have a memories parade. At home, the parents work with their child to make a memories sign. Some of them get very creative they have pictures of special friends, vacations, animals. Some of them do a special relative or somebody who has passed away. We have a parade around the school then we display our memories down a long hall for everyone to see. It is a beautiful sight. The memories sign afterward becomes a treasured keepsake to most of our families.

    Create a flag for the classroom with children’s hand prints. Using Red, White, Yellow and Blue paints you can have children do rows of colors to represent the stars and stripes. Your message can be “Thanks for the helping hand” An awesome way to celebrate the lives of veterans!

Share an idea you have used in your classroom or at home that pertains to this theme.
