Free Memorial Day Resource Unit

Memorial Day is quickly approaching and it is a great time to take a break from our normal school routine for a unit study.  Beyond the picnics, pool openings, and long weekends typically associated with Memorial Day, we have an opportunity to teach our children the real meaning behind this national holiday.

Here’s a free Memorial Day resource unit with over 40 free resources to help you create your own unit study and remember those men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
