Discovery Education is proud to support Veterans Day with a unique, global perspective on honoring veterans. Join us on Monday, November 10 at 9:30 AM EST for our first ever live global virtual field trip from the historic Tower of London, United Kingdom. An archive of the event will be available for viewing from 1:00 PM EST. Remembrance Day is a national day of tribute in the United Kingdom that is observed on November 11. It serves to honor members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Transport your students across the globe to participate in this 30-minute virtual tour. Our British guides will bring us into the Tower of London and the moat to teach students about the history of Remembrance Day, the significance of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance, and the historical importance of the war that started 100 years ago. Remember World War I and pay tribute to veterans together, as a class. To help students understand the significance of November 11th and the UK tradition of Remembrance Day, we have developed a series of engaging lesson resources and activities.
