Product Description
Students should know the purpose of Veterans Day and are probably familiar with general terms such as "soldiers" and "military". This resource takes their knowledge a step further by informing the students of WHO we are honoring and the roles the vets may have undertaken while serving in the military. The introduction talks about the U.S. military organization and its 5 branches. I have added the National Guard to this list.

There are 6 coloring pages, each featuring a branch of the military(and the National Guard) with a brief description of the branch being depicted. Other pages show a color and B&W representation of the emblems for each of these military groups. These representations come in large and small sizes. The reason why these "templates" are provided is for students to color and cut them out. The cut outs can then be used to make crowns, headbands, wristbands, armbands, and belts. Photos of the finished products are provided. Last, the students can don their "wearable art" art to show support for the vets! Also included is a small homework assignment which will supplement a classroom Veterans Day project. A letter to the parents is provided to explain a little about the project. As a result of the homework assignment,a graph will be made, leading to other learning opportunities.

Suggestions for a bulletin board that commemorates the veterans, partially made by the students, (they love doing this) can be left up beyond Veterans Day.

This resource certainly gives the students many ways to show their respect, pride, and gratitude for the vets.
