Facilitate student learning as they investigate Veterans' Day and the legacy of those who fight for our freedom. This scavenger hunt includes both a paper version and a branched Google Forms. Students begin with a partner activity analyzing a Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph to activate their background knowledge about life as a veteran. They then engage with complex text and authentic literature to consider the following questions:

  • What do you really know about Veterans' Day?
  • What challenges do veterans face in a time of war?
  • How do we honor veterans?
  • How can I honor veterans today?

The Scavenger Hunt includes four tasks-answer keys included!  Two of the tasks allow students to choose how they will investigate the essential questions.

Teacher directions and all student materials and text links included!
