Veterans Day is an important holiday for the United States. It is a time that we can honor those men and women who have served and are currently serving in the United States armed forces. Your students will have fun coloring, collaborating, and discussing their thoughts Veterans Day. It is always interesting to hear the responses from the students when they answer the writing prompt "Why should we honor the men and women who serve and who have served our country?" The personal stories that come out are always interesting.
When your students enter the room they are each given a piece of the poster, which they will color on and eventually piece together with the rest of their classmates. Each piece of the poster has two different writing prompts. It is up to you how you want to use them. Sometimes I use both and other times I just use one.
Anytime we do these poster in class, my students get excited. They love to color and be able to express themselves artistically and I love the writing portion of the poster. Each hour when my students walk into the room they enjoy reading what the other classes have written. It is a very engaging piece of artwork that you can keep up all year long and reference frequently!
*Final Poster is 5x5, however there are extra pieces of the poster that can be printed off and placed around the border for classes that are larger than 25.
This is a great assignment for Veterans Day and can allow your students to speak and write about the importance of it. If you like this one, check out my other Collaborative Posters too, or if you have a suggestion for a poster, please feel free to contact me.
These posters provide decorations for my classroom throughout the year and they are very eye catching for those who enter the room!
