NOTE: This presentation is very USA-centric. I mention Remembrance Day in a few slides, but the majority of this presentation is about the US military, US national monuments, and US history.

This product combines my middle and high school Digital Bulletin Boards into one large presentation. Many secondary librarians have been purchasing both the middle school and high school versions of my Digital Bulletin Boards for each weekly theme. Combining them into one product saves you money and time. I’ve covered all secondary grade levels here, from 6-12.
