Today is Veterans Day! This is a great day to share with our students about veterans and how veterans have served our country and each of us.
I have gathered a few helpful resources and books to share with you. The Medal of Honor Heritage Center has many great resources on those who received the medal of honor. The Scholastic Teacher site has great information on Veterans Day and includes lesson plans, books, and many wonderful resources.
Below are some books I like that you might enjoy as well. If you click on them it will take you to their Amazon page. Further down is a short video on Veterans from USAA, an insurance company for veterans and their families. I found it very moving, and a nice overview of Veterans for all ages.

To all our veterans I want to say: Thank you for serving!
