Do your students know why we celebrate Veterans Day? This resource is designed to provide basic information about how Veterans Day came to be, what it stands for and why we celebrate. This is Common Core packed with reading, writing, and vocabulary. Informational text is included for teacher and student use.

Higher-Level Thinking questions based on the Veterans Day book are part of this resource which can be used as part of whole group instruction, used as an independent thinking, and/or writing activity

Included in this jam-packed resource:

⭐ A short informational book about Veterans Day

⭐ A student book about Veterans Day (same as the teacher’s copy)
