The phoenix is a mythological bird. The phoenix was said to live for at least 500 years. It would then build itself a nest and ignite in flames. When the flames were gone, a new phoenix would rise from the ashes.

How do you observe Memorial Day? Some towns and cities in the United States hold parades and have services. Flags and flowers are often placed on the graves of soldiers and other veterans. At some services, “Taps," a song that is played at military funerals, is played on a bugle. Flags are flown at half-mast, or halfway down the flagpole, to show respect for the dead.
Archaeology is the study of human and material remains. Material remains are the tools, homes, tombs, temples, ruins, and even trash that were left behind by people many hundreds or thousands of years ago. Archaeologists study these objects to discover how people lived in the past.
