Before introducing the Vietnam War with my students, I allow them to fill out these guided notes, with no guidance. It shows me what they know and what they do not. Students use context clues, prior knowledge, and a good bit of guessing to complete the outline. They enjoy the activity! I also use the as a pre-/post-test activity. Students should be able to complete it accurately when the unit is complete.
I also use this introduce the verse novel Inside Out and Back Again by Thannha Lai. Please enjoy!
Thank you to This Little Piggy Reads for the terrific font!
