Today is a day to honor all of those who served and those who serve our country. On Friday we spent a bit of time talking to the students about Veterans. We discussed who they were, what they did and if we know anyone that is a Veteran. One of the students in my classroom this year has a father who is a Veteran so it was a great example. As I was perusing The Mailbox I found an adorable worksheet. My lovely volunteer adapted the worksheet to our classroom and here is what it looked like:
Here is the adapted version:
As you can see my volunteer added the wording: "On Veteran's Day we salute all soldiers and thank them for protecting our country." She also found a clip art picture of two soldiers; male and female. The students colored in the boy and girl to the left and then they glued on the soldiers once they were finished.
I'm a bad blogger though, because I forgot to take a photo of the finished project. :(
