Memorial Day Worksheets for Kids

Memorial Day is a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in service to their country, particularly those who died in battle.

Memorial Day Poem

Red poppies are traditionally worn and given on Memorial Day. It was written in 1915 by World War I Colonel John McCrae. McCrae’s poem had a huge impact on two women, Anna E. Guerin of France and Moina Michael. Both worked to initiate the sale of artificial poppies to help orphans and others left destitute by the war.
