Product Description
The activities in this bundle are perfect for Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, and the Fourth of July. All activities included in this bundle were designed for students at two different levels:

LEVEL 1: These activities are basic and provide students with additional visual supports and choices.
LEVEL 2: These activities require more independent work and do not provided choices.

QR Codes (videos)
• LEVELS 1 and 2 scan the QR codes to access two videos about what life is like as a soldier. The videos are the basis for all other activities.

Map Activity
• LEVEL 1: Students place themselves and soldiers on a map. This is a cut and paste activity.
• LEVEL 2: Students are linked to an interactive website. This website helps students identify where the soldiers are stationed and how many soldiers are stationed there.

Comprehension/Compare-Contrast
• LEVEL 1: Students complete the “What I Remember” activity to support comprehension of material from the videos. The “Like a Soldier” activity is scaffolded for students to compare/contrast themselves with a soldier.
• LEVEL 2: Students answer questions about soldiers and themselves to support comprehension from the videos. The information is used to complete the comparing/contrasting graphic organizer.

In Their Boots …Perspective Taking
• LEVEL 1: Students think like a soldier and draw pictures of their favorites.
• LEVEL 2: Students think like soldiers and answer questions as if they were soldiers.

Writing a Letter to a Soldier
• LEVEL 1: Students use a graphic organizer to share three facts about themselves and to generate two questions to ask a solider. Students can use the “In Their Boots” activity generate ideas. A basic template is used to provide students a model of a letter. There are four different lined templates for students to write their final draft of their letters.
• LEVEL 2: Students use a graphic organizer to share three to five facts about themselves and to generate three questions to ask a solider. Students can use the “In Their Boots” activity to help generate ideas. A basic template is used to provide students a model of a letter. There are four different templates for students to use to write their final draft of their letters.

After the students finished writing their letters, we brainstormed different items to send in a care package to the soldiers, using the the “In Their Boots.” We enclosed the letters with the care package.
