Memorial Day Resources
Memorial Day is a time to honor those who died while serving our nation and celebrate their brave achievements. Share the stories of war, sacrifice and honor of these heroic women and men with your students with this special collection of lessons, interactives and resources.
Thinkfinity Recommended Resources for Memorial Day:
- The Soldiers Experience: Vietnam versus World War I– after watching first-person accounts and analyzing artifacts, students take on the roles of soldiers and news teams to present newscasts comparing the experience of fighting in two wars. (9-12)
- Images at War – encourages students to examine attitudes toward war as revealed in Civil War photographs and WWII posters. (9-12)
- The Massachusetts 54th Regiment: Honoring the Heroes – teaches students about the heroism of African Americans during the Civil War. (6-8)
