Memorial Day Video and Resource Links

Memorial Day weekend begins in a couple of hours here in the United States. Today’s episode of CNN Student News concludes with a short segment about the history and purpose of Memorial Day. It’s probably a bit late to include the video in your lesson plan for today, but you may want to use it when students return to school on Tuesday. The video is embedded below.

Larry Ferlazzo has assembled a good list of slideshows and text resources for teaching about Memorial Day. I recommend visiting his list to find materials to complement the video embedded above.
