'Flags-In' at Arlington National Cemetery for Memorial Day 2008Observed on the last Monday of May, Memorial Day honors the men and women who have died while serving in the United States military. In addition to having celebrations with family and friends, many people visit cemeteries and memorials and place flags on the grave sites of fallen servicemen and women.


Share  stories of war, sacrifice and honor  with ReadWriteThink resources for Memorial Day. The listed lesson plans invite students to take a look at Wartime Poetry, explore the short stories of Tim O’Brien, and set off on a Vietnam War Scavenger Hunt. You can find additional resources for Honoring Our Military from our Thinkfinity partners, including a podcast on Music in the Military and an interactive version of The Gettysburg Address.
