Product Description

War is full of many tragic and heroic actions that students must be aware of if expected to have an insightful conversation about the US military draft. This activity reveals eleven different fates that can befall a soldier sent to war (with a Vietnam theme), such as, Prisoner of War, Medal of Honor, Becoming Homeless, or an Amputee.

The day after conducting a Mock Military Draft with students, 'reveal the fates' of those drafted in the previous day's activity. Cut the stories into individual slips (11 total), and place those strips into envelopes or paper bags.

Bring up each draftee one at a time to 'choose their fate' - have each student read their story aloud to the entire class. Ask those students to share their feelings about 'what happened to them' after being sent off to war.
