This Red, White, and Blue Holidays Timeline lesson plan also includes:
Fifth graders create a time line listing six national holidays in chronological order of occurrence. In this historical events instructional activity, 5th graders research holidays and write a paragraph summarizing each one. They then place each holiday on a time line and use magazine cut-outs and internet research to represent each holiday visually. Finally, they identify their favorite holiday and write a paragraph describing why they enjoy it the most.
