Workers, Take A Holiday! The Beginning of Labor Day

When your upper elementary class returns in the fall, have them identify and define the beginnings of the labor movement and Labor Day in the United States. They thoughtfully reflect on changes that have occurred in the way we think about this holiday. They also write a contribution to a Labor Day scrapbook, such as a letter to a pen pal in another country who doesn't celebrate Labor Day, an essay on some aspect of the origins of the holiday, or an essay about Peter J. McGuire.
