This packet contains a poem that is informative and promotes patriotism. The poem makes the point that Memorial Day is not just a day for getting off from school and having fun. Rather, it is a day for remembering and reflecting on how others were willing to give up their lives in order to keep our country free. A page is included to introduce Memorial Day vocabulary words. This could also be used as an anchor chart. An anticipation chart assesses background knowledge of the students before reading and a check on what they have added to their bank of knowledge after reading. The packet has two writing prompts that ask the students to apply what they have learned to their real world experiences. Check-up worksheets are included to help the teacher assess what the students have learned.
