November 2019 Grades 5-8 Lesson of the Month

his for honor cover

Since becoming a national holiday in 1938, our country has been celebrating and honoring United States veterans each year on November 11. As this day of observance rolls around, your students may wonder why they have no school, or why their parents have the day off from work. These picture books are a great opportunity to share the history of this holiday and why we observe Veterans Day today.

For our friends outside of the US, please adapt this lesson to your own country’s holiday. For example, Remembrance Day in Canada!
