Social Studies – May 11-22 Patriotic Holidays 

Since summer is quickly approaching and school is coming to an end, we thought it would be fun to conclude by focusing on some patriotic summer holidays. Our three lessons will include materials and fun activities about Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Independence Day (the 4th of July.)

Students should begin this series of lessons by reading the “Holiday Summary.”

Lesson 1: Our first lesson for this week will focus on Memorial Day. Students will draw a picture about Memorial Day and then write a sentence that tells about the picture they drew. 

Activity 1: Enjoy a fun coloring sheet about Memorial Day!

Video: Check out this video to find out more about Memorial Day:

Lesson 2: Lesson 2 is all about Flag Day and the symbol that the flag is for our country. After reviewing the “Holiday Summary” about Flag Day, take a look at Lesson 2. Start by reading the Pledge of Allegiance with your student. Then have students complete the cut and paste activity to help them better understand the Pledge.  

Activity 2: Students can color their own American Flag.

Lesson 3: This lesson encourages students to learn more about The 4th of July. Review the “Holiday Summary” one more time.  Students should then read the short passage about The 4th of July and answer the questions.

Activity 3: Complete the 4th of July word search.
