As a DoDDS teacher for over 25 years, I continue to teach and learn about the sacrifices and challenges our military children face. They have inspired us to give it our all as we walk into the classroom each day. These activities will create awareness of the service and sacrifices of our military's children. This is an opportunity to thank children for their support to our nation's war fighters, and recognize the important role they play in the strength of our nation by contributing to the strength of the military family. Please take some time to discuss and honor these amazing children in your classrooms. This unit is also appropriate for the nonmilitary children in your class. Please email me or visit my blog for more information about the military child.
