In honor of Veteran’s Day, Meet Me at the Corner, has an interview with Vern Jumper, a Veteran who was aboard the USS Midway during the Evacuation of Saigon in 1975 done by the Robert, one of the channel’s kid correspondents.
Interview of a Veteran: Evacuation of Saigon is 4 minute interview that will captivate elementary ages because of Mr. Jumper’s personal account. The interview also includes Mr. Jumper’s personal photographs from the evacuation and maps of the area to provide a brief geography lesson.
Some of my favorite Meet Me at the Corner virtual field trips include:
- San Francisco Cable Cars
- Queens Botanical Garden: Build Your Own Worm Bin
- Falconry at The United States Air Force Academy
- Colorado Firefighter
- Christmas in New York City
New educational episodes are uploaded every two weeks along with links to relevant websites about the topic and follow up questions available through the Learning Corner.
Huge thanks to all the Veterans who have served to protect our country on this Veteran’s Day!
Meet Me at the Corner is a free site whose e-mails I receive on a regular basis. No compensation was received for this post.
