The Wall Inspires Letters to Veterans

Eve Bunting’s The Wall inspires students to write letters to veterans at local veterans’ hospitals.

This Was War

Using audio-visual equipment, students interview a veteran of a war or a person who lived while a war was happening.

Remember Our Veterans

Investigate the roles brave men and women have played in your nation’s history as you learn about patriotic holidays.

Remembrance Day Classroom Lesson Plan

Concepts to be taught:
1. War is a DISASTER (Not a game, or a heroic adventure)
2. War is a PREVENTABLE disaster.

We Thank You, Veteran!

Students use information from videos, picture books, and relatives’ military backgrounds to help write a short or extended message of gratitude on a greeting card for local veterans.
