3.6 Arts and Crafts: Poppies–and Why – November 11 Is Veterans Day

November 11 is Veterans Day and is frequently symbolized by red poppies worn in the lapels. Prepare to commemorate the service of all who have defended their country in military uniform with a lesson in history, research skills, and arts and crafts. Try an Internet search for paper flowers, more fused plastic bag projects, and then be brave–make poppies, wear them, and thank a vet!
