Labor Day Worksheet Collection
Sept. 3, 2022
Labor Day became an official federal holiday in 1894. Historically, we celebrate it to honor the achievements of the Labor Movement of the 19th century in defending the rights of workers and improving their working conditions. Labor Day reminds us to recognize and value the contribution of each and everyone who’s working for the good of the society and our country.
This is a great time to talk to your kids about the value and importance of labor, choosing a future profession and paying respect to all the hard working women and men they meet every day. Kids Academy has made small activity collections for kids of different ages from preschool to grade 3 to celebrate this beautiful holiday by learning and answering questions about different jobs, completing community-helpers-themed math tasks and coloring some fun characters.
Does your toddler already know what tools doctors and firefighters use in their work? Will they be able to recognize the hats that different community helpers wear? Let’s find out! Download and print out the worksheets below to check your kids’ knowledge. Use the last one, the Little Chef coloring page, as a fun reward activity.
Can one see a teacher performing in the circus? Is a construction person’s job riding through prairies on a horse?
