Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11 each year.  It is a time to recognize and thank our veterans and provides opportunities for learning about history and community.  This video presentation provides several activities and lesson possibilities related to two excellent picture books: In Flanders Fields by Linda Granfield, illustrated by Janet Wilson and The Wall by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Ronald Himler.  Other books and ideas for cross-curricular activities are also discussed.
