Today is Veterans Day, a federal holiday commemorating and honoring the service of American men and women in uniform. In recognition, Congress has mandated that every educational institution receiving federal funds take a day to teach about our country's heroes. If you are planning on discussing the importance of our military with your students, today or in the coming weeks, there are some fantastic resources for reading, sharing and contributing.

Take a moment to peruse the following:

  • The official US Government website about Veterans Day
  • Teachervision resource website
  • Scholastic Veteran's Day website (Fantastic for younger children!)
  • History Channel's Veteran's day website (A lot of great age-appropriate videos!)
  • TeachingHistory.org Veteran's Day spotlight webpage
Happy Veterans Day from AAE! Be sure to thank a veteran for their service!

Have any resources to add?
