In this resource, you will find activities to do for Patriots' Day. Students use the articles found on Scholastic.com regarding the events of September 11 (9/11). Included are QR code cards for each article (total of 16 articles) that students can use their tablets, Ipads, Chromebooks or any other QR scanner device. If you do not have access to a QR app/scanner, simply scan before class and print out the articles for your class to use.
Reading strategies covered in these activities include analyzing characters, comparing point of view, examining primary source documents, summarizing, writing reflective poetry and constructing written responses.
I've also included a simple craftivity for your students to make. Use the banners to decorate your classroom, hallway, or send home with students to hang up at home. You can also hang students' writing beneath them for an attractive and intentional hallway display.
If you have any questions regarding my product, please leave me a question in my TpT store. I truly hope this product helps you teach about this important event in our country’s history, as well as focus on key nonfiction reading skills.
Please remember that your purchase entitles you to use this and make copies for your classroom. Do not share/copy/email or upload this to a shared server. Refer colleagues to my store to purchase their own lessons, or purchase additional licenses for them.
