Memorial Day: Poster Activity - Let your students express themselves for Memorial Day using this 8.5 x 11 Memorial Dday remembrance poster. This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom as the holiday approaches, and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.

The Memorial Day poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color.

If you are reading a story about Memorial Day or watching a movie, this would be a great follow-up activity for reflection.

You could also use as a center activity or even as morning work. Use it in your classroom however you would like.

The sections for the students to fill out are:

*Memorial Day is a day to....

*I appreciate soldiers' families because...

*Memorial day makes me feel ______ because....

*If I could talk to a soldier that lost their life, I would say.....

*Heroes are...

*Patriotism is...... (NOTE: if you are using this poster with second graders, you will want to discuss the meaning and maybe just have them write the definition)

I encourage my students to elaborate on the sentence they write. It's nice to see their thinking.

Please do check out my other posters. I have one for most holidays. They look so nice on a bulletin board or hanging outside the classroom. I get so many compliments on them.
