Product Description
This student worksheet tells the story of the May, 4, 1970 shootings at Kent State University in Ohio. The student-led demonstration against the Vietnam War ended with four students being shot by the Ohio National Guard in an event that came to be known as The Kent State Massacre.

After reading the 1 page summary of the event, students answer 10 reading comprehension and opinion questions to analyze the event. They also must design a memorial to the fallen students based off of what they read.

This is a great story for students to read that shows how divisive the war was and hopefully can inspire students to become more active participants in any movement that they believe in.

An answer key is included for your convenience.
