Veteran's Day Choice Board

Each year around this same time I start feeling crunched for time, because I'm always behind the curriculum map, and little assemblies and programs start popping into our day on a regular basis.  I'm always happy for my students to have new and interesting experiences, but I do feel the pressure of not falling too far behind.  Despite this time crunch, I feel that it's important to set aside some time for teaching students about Veteran's Day and to allow them to complete a few Veteran's Day activities.  I recently created a Veteran's Day Choice Board that gives students choices in the activities they complete.   There are also student directions for each of the activities.  You can get your copy by clicking on any of the pictures.

Ashleigh, Ashleigh, Ashleigh! Awesome unit! I love this! I have a multi age special needs class and I think we will all be able to use it in one fashion or another! It is so refreshing to have something different than a word find or a coloring page! Thank you for such inspiring materials!

Hi, would you mind if I shared this on my blog, hh6passport.com? I'm writing a post about Veterans Day activities for military families and want to include a few ideas from different sites. Of course, I will link back to your site for our readers to download the activity. ~Cheryl Edenfield

Ashleigh-I would love to use this in my classroom, but when I go to print it off from Google Docs, something goes wrong and I can't see the writing on a lot of the pages... just black lines. Is there a way you could send this to me?
