Quick and Easy Veteran’s Day Activities

Veterans Day is approaching, and we are happy to help you provide your students with engaging and rigorous resources. We’ve been working on U.S. holiday resources to help you get ready, and we’ve put together a handy Veteran’s Day graphic organizer.

This Veterans Day 5 Ws graphic organizer is an easy way to summarize student learning related to Veterans Day. We want our students to understand who we celebrate on Veteran’s Day and why we celebrate them. Students will be challenged to answer a who, what, when, where, and why question pertaining to the Veterans Day holiday.

Students will increase their vocabulary and demonstrate understanding of the meaning behind Veterans Day in the United States.
