It is so important to honor and remember those who served our country so diligently and humbly. This Veterans Day Poetry activity can help you and your students do just that. With a short blurb at the onset about Veterans Day, students can reflect on what it means to them. Then, in the second part of the activity, students can create an acrostic poem, using each letter of the word VETERAN to describe the significance of the day. A great extension activity would be for the students to write a letter to a veteran and include their acrostic poem.
