Happy Memorial Day! In the excitement of a three-day weekend and the beginning of summer, it's easy to ignore or forget the true meaning of this day. Memorial Day is ultimately a day for remembering and honoring those who have died while serving our country. Throughout this 5-day study, we will learn about real life heroes who have given their lives in service to our country. We will see and honor their true heroism—character, strength, courage, and sacrifice—as we strive to raise a generation who will continue to exhibit these qualities. In celebrating Memorial Day, we choose to remember their deaths in order to honor their lives.


This 32-page guide includes: 
- 5 daily lessons about heroism, patriotism, and the history of Memorial Day
- Stories of five unsung American heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice
- How to handle and fold a flag
- Ideas to support and honor current American soldiers
- Recommended picture book list
- Simple, meaningful crafts
- Healthy, delicious recipes
- And more!

What ages is this for? 
This guide is written for ages 5-12, but is designed to be done as a family study, so older and younger siblings can certainly participate.

How long is this study? 
This is a 5-day study, but you could certainly stretch it to two weeks or pick and choose your favorite activities for a weekend-long study. Our family plans to use this guide the week before Memorial Day as a great way to wrap up our homeschool year.

For young and old!

We’ve used many of the BDP watercolor guides. I’ve used them with my children and also for mom’s night with friends! Such a wonderful, affordable, resource!

Perfect

I was so excited to order the Memorial Day unit! It was exactly what I was looking for. It was perfect for my 9 and 7 year old as a way to start introducing history. We skipped some of the baking, bc it was just too much in a week, for me, but we all really enjoyed the lessons that introduced the hard topics of giving up one's life for others. It was a great way to introduce war and history in a way that wasn't bogged down with big, hard to understand, vocabulary and war info. Perfect for the early learning age range. The choice of living books was great too! I wasn't able to find all the books at the library, and was thankful for YouTube read alouds. Loved it.
