Labor Day Worksheets and Reading Comprehension

My classroom calendar shows that the American Labor Day is on the horizon, so the first half of September would be a great time to talk about this holiday as well as learn new vocabulary related to professions and tools with my middle school and high school students. For this purpose I have designed the printable Labor Day kit for my English classes. The kit includes reading comprehension passages, worksheets, flashcards and vocabulary posters that help students learn more about Labor Day as well as memorize English words related to jobs and tools.

Labor Day Reading Comprehension Passages

The Labor Day kit includes a few reading comprehension passages from which kids can learn about the holiday, manual labor, blue-collar and white-collar workers, differences between employers and employees as well as between salary and wages. These easy-to-read passages go with the multiple choice questions and true or false worksheets.
