This is a Memorial and Veterans' Day graphing and craft activity. The activity is simple, engaging, and makes an easy hallway display. Poll your students using a large whole class graph (graphing pieces and display sign included). Your students will graph based on how they prefer to honor/remember veterans: display the flag, wear red, white, and blue, or send cards to veterans. From the whole class graph the students will create a tally chart and bar graph. The students will analyze their data on the recording sheet. They will then create a person page topper. I have provided you with a few choices for page toppers. One option would be for students to make a page topper of themselves with an American flag hat. Other option would be to make a veteran using the various hats included in the file.
I hope this Veterans' and Memorial Day project is a favorite with your students.
