Teaching students about Veterans Day is no easy task. Even some of the most seasoned teachers struggle with teaching kids heavy topics such as war. Our goal at Studies Weekly is to make teaching these key topics a positive experience for educators and students. This is why we have partnered with Canines with a Cause to create an exclusive Veterans Day video assembly. This event will highlight the importance of Veterans Day in a format that appeals to all audiences.
Veterans Day Video Exclusive
Veterans Day can be a difficult topic to teach elementary-age students. For 30 years, Studies Weekly has been providing classrooms nationwide with free lesson plans, interactive online learning experiences, and helpful videos.
In addition to these tools, we have created a virtual Veterans Day video assembly to honor our nation’s veterans. On November 10, 2017, this exclusive virtual video assembly put together by award-winning director Loki Mulholland will be available for you at our Veterans Day website.
Working and training service dogs has proven to be very beneficial to veterans. The bond created by the training process can lessen stress and help veterans deal with the invisible scars of war. Dogs provide confidence, love and comfort to transform lives.

About Our Partner
We have partnered with Canines with a Cause to put together this video for your students. Among other things, this virtual assembly will address several questions including What do dogs have to do with veterans?
Canines with a Cause answers this question and others every day. They provide veterans and rescued dogs opportunities to work together and support each other. See their website for more information on their fostering, emotional support, and training programs.
Many Veterans won’t talk or share their experiences… They fear the judgement, rejection, and even the lack of empathy to what they are going through. But a dog…is better than any medication that can be prescribed.
