Lesson 1: Meet the Defenders
Which branch of the military built a giant walking robot? What did Walt Disney do for the Navy during World War II? How did a child dial the wrong number, get a military base, and start a beloved tradition?
The histories, traditions, and responsibilities of our Armed Forces are fascinating — send your students on an adventure of discovery by printing and sharing the Meet the Defenders Scavenger Hunt (Answer Key), then letting them scour the Meet the Defenders Interactive Thinglinks to find the answers. When you’re finished, reflect on what you’ve learned by sharing out the most amazing discoveries your students have made — it’s simple, fun, and filled with learning!
Awesome…it’s what you do!!!
