Now, more about this pack...................

IMPORTANT---- I offer this SAME Veterans Day passage in two different formats. This particular product is a one page passage with 7 text-based questions that go along with the passage.

The other format is for interactive notebooks. It is the exact same passage and questions just formatted differently. If you would like to view the interactive notebook version, click HERE . You can then read the description to see which format works best for you.


(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 Veterans Day 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.


What's included?

This pack includes a one page reading passage that should help students better understand the holiday of Veterans Day.

In addition to the passage, there are 7 questions. One is on the definition of Veteran, one question is on The Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, and then there are five other questions.

An answer key is also provided.

PLEASE.... if you have any questions about the questions asked, what the passage includes, or anything else, just send me a message before you buy. :-) I will be glad to try and answer those.


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.

**PLEASE... if you see any typos, send me a message before you rate the product. I can usually have corrections made very quickly. Thank you ahead of time.
