How do different countries observe Labor Day? Create a cube to honor jobs that men and women do.
Open a discussion with students focused on the history of Labor Day. Why did this holiday start? The first Labor Day parade was sponsored by the Central Labor Union in New York City on September 5, 1882. In 1894, U.S. President Cleveland made the first Monday in September a day to honor blue-collar workers. Invite students, working in small groups to find out how Labor Day began in their country and gather information about its origins. Once research is complete and shared, here’s one way to honor workers in one's community.
Create a cube: Students draw six large circles with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Within each circle draw a square whose corners touch the circle’s sides. Cut out the six circles with Crayola Scissors.
Choose jobs: Inside the squares, use Crayola Twistables to draw pictures of people doing various jobs. Decorate panels with words, dates, or patriotic symbols.
Put the cube together: Students fold the lines forming each square upward. Lines can be erased if so desired. Place one circle face down on its edges. Select one edge from each of four other circles and attach them to the edges of the circle facing down with Crayola Glue Sticks. Add the sixth circle and continue to glue adjoining edges to form your cube.
Provide time in the school day for students to share their cubes and the jobs they selected with small groups of classmates.
