The Problem

Every year, the nation celebrates Memorial Day to honor the men and women who gave their lives in defense of our country.  Your town wants to create a memorial dedicated to these Americans.  What type of memorial would be practical and serve this purpose… and why?

Creating a Memorial

Students will review the history of Memorial Day, as well as different memorials that have been created to honor soldiers.  They will then decide on the best memorial for their town to adopt.
