Memorial Day Worksheets for the Classroom

Memorial Day happens in May, and it’ll be here before you know it!  We are excited to help you collect resources in your classroom this year. We’ve been working on many teacher tools and resources to help you get ready, starting with a simple Memorial Day Word Search.

This printable Memorial Day worksheet is a fun way to review vocabulary related to the holiday. Students will be challenged to find content-specific words to help them review and reinforce vocabulary around this special day. Words included are

  • sacrifice
  • May
  • courage
  • peace
  • memorial
  • battle
  • poppy
  • remember
  • soldier
  • wreath
  • hero

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding  

As a class, sit down and talk about the different words and what they mean. To extend your students, once they have found the words in the word search, have them use these words in sentences.
