November 11th is Veterans Day. This is a day where we all pause to honor those who have served our nation and protected our freedoms in armed forces. Across America, people will be taking part in a variety of patriotic ceremonies and military tributes. In schools, students, teachers, and administrators will be conducting “flag raising ceremonies, assemblies, and lessons that emphasize veterans and their role in our history.”
According to the Ohio Revised Code (ORC 3313.602), every school district in the state of Ohio is required to observe Veterans Day and do a program and/or lesson “that coveys the meaning and significance of that day. The amount of time that each school devotes to this observance shall be at least one hour or, in schools that schedule class periods of less than one hour, at least one standard class period.”
This site provides several activities, lessons, and resources for elementary, middle, and high school students.
