2022 Veterans Day Project

2022 Veterans Day Project

INVITING ALL TEACHERS!

The Tulare County Museum needs your help to commemorate the 245th anniversary of the adoption of the Stars and Stripes by Congress with our community through our students. This project has two parts, the first part entails you conducting a lesson in your classroom around Veterans Day. The Tulare County Museum will provide:

  • Essential questions for each grade level as an example of possible lessons/topics
  • Additional resources including documentaries, podcasts, art, music, and poetry
  • The opportunity to have a military veteran visit your class
  • Poppies for students to cut out and write a short letter to an active service member at the end of the lesson that we will deliver through A Million Thanks program after the exhibit

The second part of the project will be the unveiling event on Saturday, November 19 at 10:00 a.m. This part of the project will include:

  • Color Guard/Flag Salute
  • Singing of the National Anthem
  • The unveiling of all the poppies students cut out that will be hanging in the museum
  • Veterans sharing their history as speakers
  • Poetry readings by students
  • Patriotic songs

Poppy cutouts with letters written on the back from students will need to be collected by museum staff no later than October 31 in order to include them in the display that will be unveiled at the Tulare County Museum.
