------------------

In this highly-engaging lesson, students complete three hands-on activities to learn about this history and origins of Veterans Day!

Students complete a guided reading assignment and examine a "Veterans Day Facts" sheet to supplement every student's knowledge on this holiday! Both of these readings will be used for the next two activities!


Students then take their knowledge and put it on display by completing a "News Cast" assignment where they, in the shoes of journalists, compile a report that explains the origins of this day! A close-reading crossword puzzle activity is also included to engage all students at any part in this activity!

Enjoy!
