Take a Veteran To School Day

CELEBRATE: "TAKE A VETERAN TO SCHOOL DAY"

September 15, 2011

 

Dear Teacher,

To help show our veterans how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice, The HISTORY® Channel  has developed Take a Veteran to School Day. This topical, non-partisan initiative will..

 

• Connect veterans of all ages with students across the country

• Lead to a better understanding of history

• Reinforce bonds between veterans and everyday citizens in communities

To help make the most of the day, teachers of grades 4 through 7 will discover downloadable guides below, one for educators and the other for students. Teachers of grades K-3 and 8-12 can find valuable, age-appropriate resources at veterans.com.

Please print out these resources and visit veterans.com to learn how you can locate a veteran to invite to your school.  At this site sponsored by HISTORY, you’ll also find ideas for hosting an exciting, educational Take a Veteran to School Day for your classroom.
