This download contains 2 Veterans Day cootie catchers and recording sheets, as well as suggestions on using them to help your students learn about the history of this important holiday.
First have students read one of the suggested articles (links included) or watch one of the suggested videos (links included). Then, have students pair off and check comprehension using the fun cootie catchers while recording their answers on the recording sheet.
This gives students a valuable chance to discuss what they learned and help solidify learning as well as practice academic language for the content area of social studies! This is an excellent way to increase student interaction and classroom discussion.
