Memorial Day 2017

This Monday Americans will celebrate Memorial Day.  Who are we honoring?  How did the holiday come about?  Isn’t Memorial Day usually on May 30th?

Students learn a little about the history of the holiday, analyze the possibilities for when it is celebrated, and study the incredible numbers of deaths and casualties that have been caused by war. While trying to make conclusions and observations about the numbers, they can’t help but appreciate the terrible cost of war and the gift that those that serve in the military have given us and our country.

Flag Art – A little ratio art might be a fun way to get ready for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday.  In this activity students measure; create whole number ratios for the official U.S. flag; decide how our artistic flags will be different from the official flag; make stars from regular pentagons, and finally create a flag design in honor of Memorial Day.
