Enrichment Studies - Fine Arts for homeschool families


Veterans Day

As a busy homeschool mom, I know all too well how some “lesser-known” holidays come around and I haven’t had time to prepare anything special to teach my children about it. Well, Enrichment Studies is aiming to make things easier for you by doing all the legwork! Our hope is that this Veterans Day resource collection will make it super simple for you to just jump in and enjoy sharing the information with your kids. We have bunches of printables, videos, and interesting things to learn. Whether you have little tykes or teens, there is something for everyone here.

If you like what you see, please feel free to sign up to get a whole bunch of freebies that we offer. These will help you get a feel for the various products we offer. I’ll send them to you right away.

This structure was build in remembrance of the December 7th, 1941 attack on the Pearl Harbor Naval Base in Honolulu, Hawaii.  The U.S.S. Arizona was sunk in the attack, and over 1,000 marines and navy soldiers died.  Franklin D. Roosevelt declared December 7th as “a day that will live in infamy.”  Here is his famous Pearl Harbor speech.
