This is a short slide show that is intended for whole class instruction. It contains information about the history of Veterans Day and information about the mission of each of the 5 main service branches. It is written with end of first beginning of second graders in mind.
I used it with my first graders to help with our Green Question lessons. I read a slide and then asked a questions such as " WHO was the President that helped start Veterans Day?" or "WHAT is one thing the Coast Guard does for America?" They used the information in the slides to respond in complete sentence answers.
I pulled the pictures google images or my Power Point clip art file. All information was pulled from legitimate websites, no wikipedia. A list of the 3 websites used for information has been added to the final slide.
