Product Description

Celebrate Veterans Day with The Wall by Eve Bunting. Students will love listening to the story of a young boy and his father who are visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC. As they scour the wall for the boy’s grandfather’s name, they encounter and observe many people who have been affected by losing a loved one during war.

This lesson is designed to be used with intermediate students as a whole group read aloud. Book companion activities can be done at a time that works best for your class.

**Be sure to check out the preview to get a more in-depth look at everything included with this 48-page download! **

The lesson objective is: Students will be able to determine the theme of The Wall by analyzing how characters are affected by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

At the end of the lesson, students will answer the following question independently: What is the theme, or lesson, readers can learn from The Wall?

Several differentiated assessment options are included.


For the lesson, teacher resources include: teacher guide with skill rationale/teacher language, lesson plan with stopping points, text-dependent questions (and scaffolding questions for each), expected student responses, post-its to print questions and place in book for easy reference during the lesson.

Other student resources included: large, printable form of the essential question, student friendly objective, and questions to post for visual learners.

There are tons of extras and extensions to be used after the lesson for more fun and learning!

  • Colorful vocabulary cards and blank cards
  • Student vocabulary graphic organizer to infer meaning of words and provide context clues
  • Students read an informational article about Veterans Day. Then, students complete each of the four responses (main idea, vocabulary, text structure asking questions). Two differentiated articles are included.
  • Students practice the strategy of visualizing. On the movie reel, students sketch the five most important events from the story that helped them understand the story. Then, label their sketches with key words from the text.
  • Students collect important events from the story and complete the story map.
  • Students color the Veteran’s Day coloring page.
  • Students write to explain why they are thankful to live in America. Several differentiated lined writing pages are included.
  • Students work together to discuss questions and prompts on discussion cards.
