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.

A portion of proceeds from every sale will be donated to TAPS: Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, which cares for the families of America's fallen heroes. To learn more, visit

Thank you for a guide that has put more meaning into this day for our family. I knew I did not want Memorial Day to be all about vacations and BBQs. This guide gave me just the right words and information to share with my children. I also loved the different real-life heroes that we celebrated and remembered each day. The books from the booklist were the perfect addition to our learning. I don't think I've ever celebrated Memorial Day with such honor before. Thank you!

Highly Recommend this Memorial Day Study

We loved using this study to learn the who’s, why’s and how’s of this special day. I loved how everyday we had a real life hero story to read about and how the ultimate hero is Jesus Christ.
The supplemental reading books were easy to find at the library.

Memorial Day Guide

You did a great job on this unit!! It is designed to be easily executed. You honored those who had died for our freedom. You, fittingly, concluded with Jesus, our Ultimate Hero, who died for us so we could know Him and have true freedom. And I was incredibly surprised when I found my own brother being honored on the Vietnam War section. Thank you for providing such a thoughtful guide!

Loved it!

My kids and I LOVED all of the activites, snacks, and books this curriculum recommended. It was very easy to use with minimal prep and gave my children a much better understanding of the great sacrifice that others have given to enjoy the freedoms we enjoy. Thank you!
