FAST FACTS ABOUT THIS VETERANS DAY LIBRARY LESSON

  • Recommended for: Grades K-5
  • Lesson Duration: 1-2 library lessons (about 50 minutes total)
  • Formats: PPT, Google Slides, PDF

TWO IMPORTANT NOTES:

1 – This library lesson is designed to complement an Veterans Day read-aloud. The actual read-aloud story comes from you! I cannot include a recorded read-aloud due to copyright restrictions.

2 – 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.
