Veterans Day is a holiday observed annually on November 11 that honors military veterans. It marks the anniversary of the end of World War I, which formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. It celebrates the service of all US military veterans. These veterans are extremely important to us. Their uniforms are important to them. They use camouflage (make something blend in with their surroundings). Camouflage has been engineered over and over again to help veterans. Your challenge is to design camouflage for a soldier so that the soldier blends in with the room. What colors will work best? Where will the soldier blend in easiest/hardest? Will you need more than one color?
Your soldier should be colored and then hung up somewhere in the room so that it is camouflaged. It shouldn't be hung behind items but placed on top of the item. Challenge yourself to use more than one color of camouflage or place your soldier on different colors.
