I wanted to create an activity to use on Memorial Day this year. This is a reading activity is just the trick! A short reading article that explains the origins of Memorial Day and intertwines the power of the wind by discussing wind turbines. Student's can then make a fun pinwheel and wind sock to take home and think about the soldier's who have died for our country.
Includes reading guide with questions, pinwheel pattern, and wind sock instructions.
