Every day, teachers share thousands of different types of digital content with their students and colleagues. For teachers who are recognizing Veteran’s Day or Remembrance Day in class today, consider integrating one of these content items into your lesson. All of these are among the most shared content in Edmodo this week.
The History of Veteran’s Day: First, a video from The History Channel detailing the history of Veteran’s Day. This video has been shared hundreds of times by Edmodo educators. (NOTE: The History Channel website is a great resource for all kinds of video content you can integrate into your social studies and history lessons.)
Vocabulary and Spelling: For younger students, this Veteran’s Day themed Vocabulary lesson from VocabSpellingCity may serve as a great lead-in to a writing assignment. Teachers are also sharing this vocabulary lesson with a Veterans Day theme.
Writing Prompts and Inspiration: Finally, help students understand the sacrifices our soldiers have made – make history come alive with six stories about military heroes from Gimundo.com
