Veterans Day Activities

2 Easy Veterans Day Activities for Kindergarten

Veterans Day is a special occasion to honor and express gratitude to the brave men and women who have served in the armed forces.

If you’re looking for fun, but educational, Veterans Day activities for your little kindergarteners, here you go!

I’ve created a cute little flip book + thank you note kit that is perfect for kindergarteners or first graders to learn all about this special holiday.

This is always a SUPER popular resource in November… in fact, over 120,000 teachers have used this over the years. You can grab your set here!

The Flip Book

Veterans Day Activities

Your students will love these Veterans Day activities that practice tracing, vocabulary, and fine motor skills!

This little flip book helps kids learn about this special holiday, while engaging them by learning new vocabulary!

Each page has a vocabulary word that can be traced. There is also a numbered box on each page that corresponds to an accompanying picture.

Cut and glue the pictures into the pages to illustrate the page!

The Thank You Note

At the end, there is a blank thank you note for students to write and/or draw a note to a veteran.

This is perfect for a class-wide Veterans Day project! Also makes a great addition to writing journals, interactive notebooks, or as a stand-alone literacy center.

Ways to Use

These are great Veterans Day activities for the whole class to do in November!

This makes a great literacy center, social studies activity, substitute teacher activity, and also great to send home to give to loved ones!

If you have little preschoolers at home, this would also be a fantastic activity for them… and you can add it to your activity calendars, which you can find here.

Enjoy this fun resource to enhance your Veterans Day lesson plans.

Teacher Tips

  • If you’ll be short on time, pre-cut the pages for super fast assembly!
  • Use this in conjunction with a family day or for a community veterans event.
  • Great for older students with special needs as well!
