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.

Beautiful and thought provoking resource!

My three boys and I really enjoyed the Memorial Day Guide by Brighter Day Press. The stories included in the guide, as well as the book suggestions, were memorable and thought provoking. I was learning right along with my boys! More often than not I found myself in tears as I read these stories- it stirred within me profound gratitude to God and for the heroes of our country. My favorite part was how at the very end, Whitney makes a connection to our ultimate hero- Jesus Christ.

If you are on the fence, I cannot recommend this enough. It is extremely well done and you will not be disappointed. Thank you, Whitney and your team, for another beautiful and thought provoking resource!

Wonderful way to remember and celebrate Memorial Day!

I did this with my 7, 5, and 3 year old and we all loved it and learned so much. The books were wonderful, the crafts were simple, and the recipes were easy, healthy, and delicious! I love that I can use this study for years to come as my children grow!

Unexpectedly Profound

When I chose the Memorial Day unit study, I figured I would find some great book lists, crafts and structured reading schedules—which I did! I also came away from the week moved in a very profound way. This holiday had come and gone from my life for decades where it more or less signaled BBQ’s, pool parties and the unofficial start of Summer. After going through this study with my children and truly stepping back to take the time to reflect upon what Memorial Day represents, I am forever changed. I sobbed through the reading of “21 Steps”, and as my children and I practiced folding the American flag so intentionally and soberly I began to grasp the deep gratitude towards those who gave all. God Bless America.

Love it!

Hands down, our favorite guide from Brighter Day Press!

A wonderful way to honor fallen soldiers

This guide was truly a blessing to my kids & my family. I absolutely loved it! I have never seen a unit study for Memorial Day before and I am now hooked on Whitney’s studies. Memorial day is such an important holiday for the history of our country and reverence to those who have fought for our freedoms. I learned so much and am glad to instill this in my children at a young age. This was perfect for my young children and I will use it over and over again. In fact I’m making the muffin recipe weekly already! The guide is beautifully done, the content is perfect for children's attention spans & ability to absorb, and the suggested books were great. I truly can’t recommend this enough. I will continue to come back for more of Whitney’s resources and hope for more holiday resources to be added!
