Wow, I am so grateful for out veterans! They preserve our freedom and protect our country. I've been looking for the perfect activity to help the children appreciate those brave men and women. I've spent the afternoon searching videos, and have several I want to show! I've narrowed it down to a couple:
The one on the left gives a nice collection of pictures of various soldiers performing various duties, accompanied by a powerful song.
The lyrics are in a language the children can understand. Very child friendly!
If I can get through this song without crying, this video gives a nice connection of visuals of soldiers and the USA.
Speaking of "can't get through it without crying," I thought I'd read my favorite book for Veterans Day. I've read this every year, and I am amazed every year by the look on the children's faces as I read. It definitely touches their emotions!
It might also be time to review this activity from Sept. 11th on Heroes.
Americans, what are your plans to celebrate our Veterans?
