Thank-A-Vet Postcards and Other Ways to Honor Veterans Day This Year

VeteransAs Veterans Day approaches, many of my colleagues are finding creative and cross-categorical ways to integrate classroom activities that honor our nation's veterans.  To make it even easier, the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia released a list of three ways to recognize Veterans Day: 

  1. Recognize veterans and their sacrifices with Thank-A-Vet Postcards
    • Completed postcards can be mailed to the National Constitution Center at 525 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106. They will then be distributed to veterans through the Thank-A-Vet program.

  2. Learn about the experiences of soldiers through their own eyes with The Art of the American Soldier lesson plan.

  3. Decorate and customize Patriotic Wreaths with stars or poppies, which were popularized as a way to recognize veterans by the 1915 poem In Flanders Fields.

Recognizing Veterans Day in our classrooms reinforces the sacrifice and bravery our men and women in the armed forces provide for our country.
