5th Grade Grammar Worksheet

A Nation’s Strength

A Nation’s Strength

In this reading and writing worksheet about the poem “A Nation’s Strength” by William Ralph Emerson, students will use their understanding of figurative language to identify and define metaphors and difficult vocabulary. While the poem is a great addition to a fifth grade fiction comprehension lesson at any time of year, its reference to “brave men who work while others sleep” makes it an especially poignant text to analyze in honor of Veterans Day.
