Veterans Day Activities
Lesson Plans, Activities, and Resources Focus on Wartime Service and Sacrifice
On November 11, we honor the wartime service and sacrifice of men and women in the armed forces. Originally proclaimed Armistice Day in 1919 to commemorate the end of World War I, it was renamed Veterans Day in 1954 to include American veterans of all wars.
The following lessons, activities, games, and resources will help your students celebrate service men and women past and present.
- Recognize that professional growth is integral to teachers’ work.
- Embed professional growth in daily lives of schools.
- Model for teachers and students the importance of life-long learning.
- Promote the growth of communities of learners.
- Encourage teachers to assume leadership roles.
