Here is a great power point that I made for our annual 5th grade Essay/Poetry contest. Winner reads it to the entire school.
Our nation is grateful to veterans – the brave men and women who have served in the military and have made tremendous sacrifices to protect our freedom. Honor our Veterans with this powerful tribute. You can teach character traits with the information from 28 slides ... You can even add pictures of the veterans from your family or your students family.
I set the tone with music videos…here are some links to choices…
Lee Greenwood – God Bless the USA
Toby Keith – courtesy of the red, white, and blue
Add a little fun with the carly rae jepsen call me maybe army afghanistan
It is hard for me to upload a sample because I want you to see the entire activity. I have given a lot of the information about the activity. I can only ask people to use the Character Trait - Integrity - when looking at my items.
I have made this for classroom use- please don't try to profit off of my creation. Feel free to share it with other teachers for student use. If you have any other suggestions or requests, please send me a message. I am happy to help you help your students!!
Thank you for your purchase!! Please know the proceeds are going to Texas A&M. WHOOP!!! (and if you are a UT fan - he is furthering his education at a good University) My son, Justin, will be there Fall 2013 as a member of the Corp of Cadets. He will be working on his Engineering (Chemical or Petroleum Degree).
