Infographic – The History of Memorial Day

Update: As of early 2018 This resource is no longer available online.

This is a day late, but I still want to share it. On Cool Infographics I found The History of Memorial Day which is an infographic outlining the basic history of Memorial Day and how Americans celebrate the day. The infographic is missing one important thing, links to the sources of the information presented. I would take that flaw and turn it into a quick research activity. Have your students attempt to verify the information presented in the infographic. For more resources for teaching about Memorial Day, visit Larry Ferlazzo’s list of resources.
