Veterans Day Resources 2016

Image from
Friday, Nov 11, is Veterans' Day in the U.S. While many schools across the nation will be closed, it is important to teach our children about the importance of honoring our veterans and the sacrifices they made to help preserve our freedoms.

The Library of Congress' Veterans History Project is a great way to promote research skills, learn about the valuable contributions of our nation's veterans, and help preserve veterans' stories for future generations.

The National Archives offers a great site for middle and high school learners to learn about Veterans Day through primary sources. 

Recently, Free Tech for Teachers posted some excellent videos and lesson plans on Veterans' Day.

Larry Ferlazzo maintains a list of The Best Websites to Learn About Veterans Day.

The History Channel offers a nice mini-site on The History of Veterans Day. It starts with a nice video overview and then offers more resources for students to explore.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs maintains a Veterans Day Frequently Asked Questions page. The VA also maintains a listing of Teacher Resources for Veterans Day.
