Would you like to help your children learn more about our patriotic holidays? Written for the sole purpose of teaching children about four of the most important American holidays, Patriotic Holidays uses a unit study approach to simplify the concepts while exposing the student to so many important ideas from American history.

Memorial Day (May)
Flag Day (June 14)

Veterans Day (November 11)
Each of these studies begins the week before the holiday, preparing students of all ages for the holiday and teaching them about American history, patriotism, responsibility, and appreciation of the sacrifice of countless patriots in generations past. The studies utilize readily-available resources such as carefully researched Internet sites, online encyclopedias, and easy-to-find books. The unit studies contain a Learning Plan for each of the five days of the week before the holiday and include learning objectives, daily quotations, spelling & vocabulary words, patriots to know, questions to be researched and answered, and a family patriotic activity.
