This simple Veterans Day preschool unit study is a great resource for teaching your little ones about the holiday, the history behind it, and how we can honor our veterans.
Veteran’s Day is November 11th making today a great day to teach your preschoolers about the upcoming holiday. This day is not just another holiday and/or day off school.
Veteran’s Day celebrates the end of World War I. It’s a day that we pay tribute to all of our American veterans, living and deceased, who have served our country during war and peace times.
While Memorial Day focuses on our servicemen and women who have died, Veterans Day honors them both.

The Poppy Lady – When American soldiers entered World War I, Moina Belle Michael, a schoolteacher from Georgia, knew she had to act. Some of the soldiers were her students and friends. Almost single-handedly, Moina worked to establish the red poppy as the symbol to honor and remember soldiers. And she devoted the rest of her life to making sure the symbol would last forever. Thanks to her hard work, that symbol remains strong today.
Veterans: Heroes in Our Neighborhood – An engaging rhyming picture book for readers of all ages that fosters mindfulness of and appreciation for the brave service men and women who are also our family, friends, and neighbors. These are the men and women who bravely served our great country and now humbly serve in our communities.
America’s White Table – The White Table is set in many mess halls as a symbol for and remembrance to service members fallen, missing, or held captive in the line of duty. Solitary and solemn, it is the table where no one will ever sit.
