Veterans Day is marked on November 11th by honoring and paying respect to all people who have served in the U.S. military.

Remembrance Day is observed on the same day in Canada, Australia, and several other countries. Here are some thoughtful resources to mark before or after this day with your students.

If you teach in the U.S. or at an American school abroad, it’s likely you have children of veterans in your classroom. You can find out by using Kudos 4 Kindergarten’s Veteran’s Day Graph.

Let’s make sure they know we’re thinking about them and their families. How about writing a letter of thanks and appreciation — the holidays are a hard time to be away from the ones we love.

If you would like to do a class project and send letters to our service members, here are a couple of organizations that will make sure they reach the correct hands. You might even use The Climbing Grapevine’s (free) Veterans Day We Salute You Writing Paper or The Constant Kindergartener’s Veterans Day 32 Writing and Drawing Papers.
