This is a three lesson unit by Reading Through History. In this download there is a lesson about the final battles of World War I. It is followed by a lesson concerning the legacy of the war, including how the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier came into being. The unit concludes with a two page reading which tells the story of the outbreak of the Spanish Influenza and its impact in 1918-1919. Each lesson is followed by three pages of student activities which include reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. This download includes enough material to cover three separate 25-30 minute segments of class.
*My students typically complete a lesson in about 25-30 minutes. This provides for 10 to 15 minutes of discussion/intro prior to the assignment.
