This is a great mini-unit on Veteran’s Day and Heroes. It starts out with read aloud slides that tell information about Veteran’s Day, followed by a Veteran’s day poem, and cloze activity, where students can help fill in the blanks to show what they learned. Then there is a writing activity, where students can write a thank you letter and make a card for a Veteran. There is 3 different card templates for them to choose from to color and write inside. We also talk about Heroes and how Veteran’s are considered Heroes, and we also talk about how other people in our community display heroism, even our own moms, dads, grandmothers, and grandfathers. There is a suggested read aloud “Hero Dad,” along with some links to videos that talk about heroes. Students then write about someone they think is a hero.
