Product Description
This activity is a great intro to any novel, informational text, or unit about War. I've used it for three different novels and it always works well. The first sheet gets students thinking about war, adversity, and humanity. I've included vocabulary questions as well as thought provoking ideas to make students think about how war affects their own lives/society.

The second sheet uses Stephen Cranes poem, "War is Kind" to present multiple views of war and how it impacts those around us. Students will annotate, color code, answer questions, and think thematically.
