This resource includes two resources for Remembrance Day, The Soldiers of Valour Road, Winnipeg, one designed for students in grades 5-6 and one for students in grades 7-8. Both are offered in this small bundle to allow the classroom teacher to use for differentiation.
The individual resources may be seen here:
The Soldiers of Valour Road, Winnipeg, Grades 5-6
The Soldiers of Valour Road, Winnipeg, Grades 7-8
This bundle and the Canada and the Netherlands bundle can be purchased together at a discount:
Remembrance Day Differentiated Resources Bundle of 4
Each of the two resources includes informational text about the three men who lived on Pine Street (renamed Valour Road), Winnipeg before the beginning of WWI (Leo Clarke, Frederick Hall, and Robert Shankland) and who were all awarded the Victoria Cross medal. Only Shankland survived the war. This is a great resource to use around Remembrance Day but can actually be used at any time of year, as there is no direct reference to November 11th.
Accompanying the text is a page of vocabulary and language use activities and a page of comprehension questions. At the bottom of the latter page is a short research assignment; students will need access to the internet. I have included the easiest website for them to use (on the answer key page) and the best search term to use to find it themselves.
The vocabulary and language use activities are different for the two different levels, but the comprehension and research questions are the same for both.
Also included is a page of 8 discussion or writing topics that can be assigned as group discussion or writing topics. These are the same in both resources.
Some of these or all of the discussion/writing topics might be best assigned after the reading - they can be cut up into strips to distribute among students or used as a complete page (perhaps allowing students to choose a number of topics). It can be used as an assessment tool or simply as a way to observe Remembrance Day in your classroom. Please note that the preview does not include all of the topics available in the purchased item.
