This cross curricular Math/Social Studies activity is perfect for math teachers who want to incorporate a Veterans Day lesson within the context of math. Adapted from a Social Studies lesson, twenty-five math problems lead students through the history of Veterans Day. By completing each problem, students fill in the blanks to discover the history of WWI, Armistice Day, and Veterans Day while reviewing place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, Roman numerals, and a few trivia questions for fun.
This lesson is designed for students to work collaboratively and includes problems of varying degrees of difficulty for students to help one another complete together. Checking as a whole group provides the opportunity to process the historic content. Perfect for grades 4-6.
