Memorial Day Activity: Close Reading of America the Beautiful

Memorial Day is a time to honor those who have lost their lives while serving our country in the armed forces. It is important for children to understand that this is the day when the nation mourns the loss of soldiers who died fighting for our country. For this activity, students will complete a close reading of the song “America the Beautiful.” Afterward, they can pay tribute to America’s fallen soldiers by singing the song together as a class.
