Labor Day Lessons

Thursday, August 28, 2008

Beyond burgers and beach time, Labor Day is a celebration of the community contributions of everyday workers in America. Do you know the history of Labor Day? This is a perfect opportunity to teach little ones about the jobs people do that keep our communities running. Apples4theteacher has some great resources including suggested reading lists and coloring pages for preschool and early elementary ages. Check out Kids turn central for discussion points on what working teaches us. And visit The Holiday Spot for more history and a comparison of wages by state. For even more fun printables, don't miss's homeschooling page.

Over the holiday weekend our family will be hitting a museum, laboring in the yard and having a good old fashioned American barbeque. So, how do you plan on celebrating?
