Veterans Day is a national US holiday that falls on November 11 each year. This updated 40+ page Veterans Day packet is designed for grades 1-3, although it could be stretched down to kindergarten. It can also be used with special education classes. There are reading passages which the teacher can use in several ways depending on the level of students. The teacher can of course read to lower level students while having upper level students read or follow along with the teacher. There is enough material and ideas in this packet for the teacher to use all of the activities or choose which ones to use. The activities are differentiated so you can use it with all levels in your classroom. Activities have answers provided as appropriate.
The lesson plan is structured with numerous ideas so that you can pick and choose activities that you think are most important and that you think students will enjoy the most. There is no tests included in the packet. Two ideas require the use of chart tablets and markers. There are writing prompts and other assignment pages included in the packet.
The lesson plan follows a typical format for effective lesson plans and includes strategies so all students can be successful. Most of the student success (especially for lower achieving students) occurs through the group activities. Students here will learn from one another and model for one another—even higher level students will learn the material more in depth because they will help other students in the learning tasks
