With Veterans Day just around the corner, AETN believes in the importance of educating our youth about this holiday's importance. We have gathered materials from PBS education platforms to aid educators across Arkansas in teaching students about the history, significance, and relevance of Veterans' Day to age groups ranging from middle school to high school.
Materials include videos from veterans narrating their experiences in the war and others pieces on military families sharing how their family members' service affects their lives. There is also a worksheet to actively engage students in learning.
Educators can also delve into Arkansas veterans' stories through "Veterans Coming Home: Finding What Works." This digital content and engagement initiative focuses on successful examples of veterans “finding what works” to overcome personal challenges in transitioning from active duty to civilian life. Featured Arkansas veterans and their connected support organizations include:
PBS Learning Media: Military Family Experiences
(Recommended for High School)
PBS LearningMedia - "All About the Holidays: Veterans Day"
(Recommended for K-4)
