Why do authors write nonfiction articles? Why do they write fiction pieces with personal stories? Explore these questions while teaching your kids about the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial in the process.

Students will compare a nonfiction article about the monument with the book "The Wall" by Eve Bunting, a story about a father and son looking for the grandfather's name on the monument. Students will sketch their ideas while hearing both writings and then they will compare and contrast the two.
