Veterans Day Around the World

On Tuesday, November 11th we will have a day off school to honor our veterans. This holiday is a special day to honor all the brave men and women who served in the armed forces, like the army, navy, marines corps, air force, and coast guard. These people risked their lives to make sure the rest of us can enjoy the freedom we often take for granted.

Here’s a short video about how Veterans’ Day was started.

This holiday is recognized throughout the world. We were wondering how you honor the veterans in your country? What are some things you could do to show your appreciation or gratitude to veterans?

About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.
