Are you talking about American heroes with you students? It can be a tricky topic with our little learners for so many reasons but we have you covered with these printables.
This article works well with these Simply Kinder resources:
We created this activity to do on September 11th with our students. The events of that day are not really age-appropriate for our young learners. I always tried to do something patriotic with my students that day because it just felt right. So on 9/11 one of the activities we do is talk about American heroes and wanted to share these free printables with you.
We give you two pages with this free download set – a vocabulary page and a writing page.
The vocabulary page will help you identify who is an American hero.
American heroes come in many forms and so we recently added an extra body outline so your students can add in a hero they want to honor (but we have one without as well).
The writing page allows your students to make it personal. They can write about a family member who has served, they can write a simple “thank you for your service” that you model (or not), or anything that is meaningful for them. A rich discussion here will help guide better stories.
What I love about this project is sharing it with those who have served. Sometimes we do this project prior to 9/11 and staple them into a book for a local fire station or a class family member who is currently serving.
This free printable set is an oldie so it is housed in our Teachers Pay Teachers store. Click here to download it now.
