Veteran’s Day – 2nd Monday in November
Today’s the day we celebrate our veterans,
Vocabulary – What is a veteran? Brainstorm and then look it up in a dictionary.
Poppies – Cut three 7” circles out of red tissue paper and fold them like a fan. Twist a green pipe cleaner around the middle. Open layers to resemble a poppy. Do a search on the internet to discover why the poppy is a symbol for Veteran’s Day.
Guest Speaker – Call a local military recruiting office and invite a guest speaker to share with the children what it’s like to have a job in the armed forces.
Family Veterans – Have children interview their parents to find out about veterans in their family. Encourage them to bring in pictures of veterans that they know.
