Labor Day Freebies

Labor Day is a "working man's holiday" that began during the Industrial Revolution when people, even children, worked as much as twelve hours per day. Over time, the holiday became synonymous with the start of school and end of summer. 

Many students have no idea what Labor Day stands for, so opening the lines of communication and exploring the true meaning of the holiday can be a learning adventure. 

Start with an on-the-board whole group KWL chart to see what students know, want to know, and learn about Labor Day. 

Help students discuss and reflect on career choices with these Labor Day Coloring Sheets:

Relax and enjoy the holiday...

Happy Labor Day!
