Labo Day - More Then Just A Day Off From School

So I had no clue on how to teach or celebrate Labor Day with my family beyond traditional BBQ and salute to the flag. This year I waned to do something different. I wanted to teach the children something about what makes this country so grand. I took the time to do a little research and this is what I found.

  • The definition of Labor Day Wikipedia - interesting to say the least and i learned a few things myself. Look forward to turning it into a lesson for today for my children.
  • The History Of Labor Day U.S. DOL -" a street parade to exhibit to the public "the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations" of the community " Something i have never read before and found interesting when i read it on his article.
  • Apples 4 The Teacher Labor Day Crafts - one of my favorite websites!! Check it out has tons of fun things to do for today!!
  • "Why Do We Celebrate Labor Day?" TLC - thought this was interesting but not my favorite out of the few links i did read through.
So make today more then just a day off. Take the time to learn about your history and teach it to your children. How much do you really know?? Its always fun to celebrate the holidays and its fun to teach your children so why not mix the two??? Enjoy!!

Happy Labor Day
