To differentiate in your classes, higher level students can read and complete all four. Lower-level readers can be placed in groups of 4, with each student reading a different story, completing a plaque, and then sharing his/her plaque with the others. English language learners or special education students can be placed in groups with all the same story to create a plaque together, and then present theirs to the rest of the class.
As a final activity or for homework, there are 10 review questions in which students identify characteristics of each of the four minority groups.
This is a fun activity for students to learn about some of the groups whose amazing bravery and contributions helped American through World War II.
