Teacher Guide to Veterans Day

The United States has been in many major world conflicts in the 20th and 21st centuries. In 1914, the United Stated joined Britain, France and Russia in World War I against the triple alliance of Germany, Italy and Austria-Hungary. Just over 116,000 were seen by the U.S. since the Civil War, this was the United States highest number of war-borne casualties.

In 1918, at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, fighting ceased in World War I. Formally known as Armstice Day, Veterans Day (November 11th) is a day to honor veterans living or dead who have given so much to protect our country. With our armed forces fighting enemies overseas and at home, Veterans Day is even more significant.

Veterans Day Flag Stick Craft

American Flag Stick Craft

This is a simple to make U.S. flag made from craft sticks. Since this tiny flag does not have the correct number of stars and stripes, explain to the children that the real flag has 13 red and white stripes (that represent the 13 colonies) and 50 stars (that represent the 50 U.S. states).


  • 9 Craft Sticks
  • Red and White Acrylic Paint
  • Brushes
  • Blue Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Either White Paper or White Gel Pen


  • 1. Paint 5 craft sticks red and 4 craft sticks white. Let them dry.
  • 2. Glue them together in an alternating pattern by gluing them to one craft stick (on right side of back of flag) and two broken craft sticks (in the middle and on left side of back of flag).
  • 3. Cut a small square of blue construction paper. You can either draw a lot of white stars on the blue paper using the white gel pen, or cut and glue tiny white stars onto the blue paper.
  • 4. When the glue has set, turn the flag over to front. Glue on the square of blue construction paper and glue another craft stick to the other long craft stick on the back. Let the glue set.
    You now have an American flag to celebrate Veterans Day, 4th of July, Memorial Day, President’s Day or any other day.
