Increase vocabulary and build background knowledge about Patriot Day (September 11th) with a set of vocabulary word wall cards and writing worksheets.
Patriot Day Lessons for Early Grades
Each year, a solemn holiday is held on September 11th to remember the event that occurred in 2001. Since its introduction as a national holiday, many Social Studies curriculums have added this national holiday to elementary school standards. With September 11th being such a difficult topic, we have assembled a few kid-friendly Patriot Day activities to help you teach this subject. We hope to shed some light and bring understanding to young learners by helping you teach them about the day of remembrance.
This set of vocabulary cards is designed to help students understand the September 11, 2001 event. Each of the sixteen vocabulary cards contains a large-print, easy-to-read word and an image to aid retention.
Through this activity, students will show increased vocabulary and understanding of why Patriot Day celebrations occur in the United States.
