(Interesting note... Veterans Day does not include an apostrophe because it is not a day belonging to Veterans. It is a day to honor Veterans. This is according to the US Veterans Affairs on the correct spelling)
This passage was written with 4th graders in mind, but it can be used with more advanced third graders or weaker fifth grade readers. Please use your best judgement.
This pack includes a short close reading passage that should help students better understand the holiday of Veterans Day. The passage is a half sheet, so it will work perfectly to glue into an interactive reading notebook or social studies notebook. Once glued into the interactive notebook, students can write their thinking out to the side of the passage.
In addition to the passage, there are three flippable activities (all printed on one sheet) for their notebook. One is on the definition of Veteran, one focuses on The Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, and the other focuses on 4 comprehension questions related to the passage.
In addition to doing this activity as a whole group reading lesson, you could also have students do it during a literacy center. Feel free to use it in your classroom however you would like.
