Do you want to commemorate Veterans Day or Remembrance Day with your homeschooler? Check out these Veterans Day Activities / Remembrance Day activities. There are recommended books, videos, poppy crafts, and more.

We are so fortunate to live in a country that’s not war-torn. Peace is something we can take for granted.

Remembrance Day is an important occasion to commemorate and explore with our children. It is a time when we honour those who have served and are serving in the military. It’s a time to remember and thank those who sacrificed their lives for the luxuries and freedoms we have today.

I decided to put together a list of activities which you could explore with your elementary-aged homeschooler. Feel free to pick and choose from this list and build your own unit study for Remembrance Day.

Check out this list of Veterans Day & Remembrance Day activities for #homeschoolers. #hs Click To Tweet
