Memorial Day activities and cookies! What student doesn’t love learning when food is involved? Especially Oreos! Whether you want to have an entire day’s celebration of Memorial Day or an entire week, this package has you covered! Although it is geared toward Memorial Day you could use many of the activities for Veterans Day as well. Pick some activities to do on Veterans Day and some on Memorial Day! With 40+ pages covering math, language arts and social studies topics you can choose to pack all of the activities into one day or spread them out over the week. I’d suggest choosing one or two activities to do each day and make it a week long celebration! Some of the crafts would also be great opportunities to invite a few parent volunteers to join in on the fun! *Download the Preview to see more!*
