The men and women of our United States military have served our nation with bravery, pride and patriotism since the days of the Revolution. Many who have served paid the ultimate price of their lives as they fought for freedom. On Veteran’s Day, we honor those who have served the United States of America.

What customers are saying:
“We are big fans of Founder Academy and we were super excited to see that they teamed up with one of our favorite lapbook companies. These lapbooks are make to go along with the topics that are covered in the Live Class but I feel that they can also stand alone as well. My favorite thing about the lapbook is the way the instructions are laid out. At the top of each page there is a paragraph written to the student tell them what to do.
If you are new to lapbooks, have no fear. Helpful links as well as photos are included to help you understand how they are put together. The download has everything that you need to get started. Lapbook pieces, background information, as well as fun internet links for hands on fun are all at your fingertips! You can add in other resources if you want to but it’s great on it’s on! Great value! We enjoyed this product and will look for more of these products to enhance our unit studies.” –Evamarie S.
