Use this craft to talk about how we honor fallen soldiers on ⚐ Memorial Day ⚐. Soldiers who died to protect us and because of them we live in a free country today. There is a written expression sheet that will allow the students to compare and contrast Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
If you would like to use the Bible verse included with the craft then
once your have explained Memorial Day, relate this to how Jesus died on the cross so that we might have life. His blood was shed just like that of the fallen soldiers.
This makes a neat craft that your students can make and then pass on to families of fallen soldiers, or keep for themselves as a reminder of the sacrifice that others have made for our freedom.
In addition to the crafting pages, I have included:
three different coloring pages and
three different written expression pages about Memorial Day with varying degrees of difficulty.
