PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Veterans Day is an important day for all of us. It is a day to remember the sacrifice many families have made for our country. This activity gives your students a good look at the history of Veterans Day and where it originated.
Here, you will find a great non-fiction, informational article that looks at the history of Veterans Day and tells why it wasn't always known as "Veterans Day", but in fact started out as "Armistice Day".
Great vocabulary is introduced and students have the opportunity to answer questions about the article and write a letter to a veteran they know.
This activity could be turned into a classroom writing plan as well. A word search which introduces other vocabulary to students and an answer key are all included in this bundle. Remember to thank a veteran!
