Product Description
This is an activity I did with my fourth graders. I primarily wanted them to do this as a reading exercise, but it also correlated with our lessons about World War II. Since World War II was typically covered near the end of the year, this activity was great practice for state testing!

This 5-page document includes:
-A brief historical background of the Attack on Pearl Harbor (This activity assumes that students have at least some familiarity with the attack).
-The text of Roosevelt's speech, which spans two pages
-Six questions based on the speech
-An answer key

I would usually print this out as a packet to give to the students. (Excluding the answer key, of course!) We would discuss Pearl Harbor, read the speech together, and discuss the speech before students answered the questions. I liked having the speech stapled to the questions so students could refer back to the speech. Also, if the students had to finish this at home, they could have the speech to read at home.

Thanks for looking! I hope you find this useful.
