Veteran's Day Writing Sheets
Have your students write a thank you letter to a Veteran. Six different writing sheets are included with the title "Thank You, Veteran!" Three of the writing options are large, triple lined sheets with a space for including a picture.This is great for younger students. The other three writing options included are full sheet, single lined writing paper.
Design a Medal Glyph
All templates and directions are included for this project. Your students will complete the "Design a Medal" sheet where they answer a series of simple questions. With each answer, they are given a certain design piece to create their own medal. Each medal will be unique to each student. You can also have your students turn their design into a "Thank You" medal to be given as a token of honor to a Veteran.
Veteran's Day ABC Order
This is a great activity for centers, or send it home as homework to continue the conversation about Veteran's Day with families. Students will sort the word cards according to alphabetical order and will then show their work on the corresponding recording sheet.
Veteran's Day Song
This is a simple song to the tune of Three Blind Mice. Great for introducing and wrapping up a Veteran's Day unit. I've also had my class present this simple song at an all-school Veteran's Day assembly. Easy to learn, and a quick option if you need something to present at an assembly!
