Labor Day honors the achievements and contributions of organized labor as well as the efforts of every working person. The September observance is a national U.S. holiday, but the real Labor Day is a world-wide worker commemorative, celebrated on May 1 or May Day. This is also called Worker Memorial Day and recognizes those who have suffered and died in the struggle for fair wages and working conditions. Some mistakenly think it's just a socialist holiday. Really, it's for everyone who works. Here are several websites which offer free printable coloring pages, games, puzzles and party decorations. For those who want to explore the more educational aspect of Labor Day, I listed some links and websites with free printable lesson plans and activities as well.
