Ask students if they have any special Mother's Day plans for their mother, grandmother, or another woman who's like a mother to them. Have each student write a paragraph describing a memorable gift they've given someone for Mother's Day. Or, arrange students into small groups and ask each group to list two or three little things they can do for their mothers or female guardians each day. Then have groups use their lists to create posters with the theme "Make Every Day Mother's Day."
Education World's Holiday Center provides a Mother's Day page filled with links to activities, lessons and numerous other resources.
