ANZAC Day is an important part of our history. It is a day where we commemorate (not celebrate) with our New Zealand neighbours.
This event is a huge part of our Australian and New Zealand shared history. It is a huge responsibility to make sure we engage our students in the recognition and commemoration of this event. We have created some ANZAC Day Reading, Writing and Craft ideas that will assist in building their knowledge and understanding of the sacrifices that have been made.
It is a national day of remembrance held in Australia and New Zealand on the 25th of April every year. The day commemorates the soldiers who served and died at Gallipoli in World War I.
Our Reading, Writing and Craft tasks cater for any level and have many tasks to choose from. We have created a PowerPoint that you can share that clearly outlines the mateship, perseverance and honour that our soldiers shared. We have recipes and craft that will add value to your history lessons.
Here are some book recommendations for you…
There are so many books available to read to your grade. We have created a variety of templates for you to use with any book and you can choose to read any you that have. Use these in small groups or in whole-grade tasks. These templates have been easy for us to use and our students always enjoy using them. The reflection at the conclusion has always been a highlight for me, as the insights our students have can be amazing. Some books are challenging for some students as they can be quite emotional. Make sure that your students are supported and that you have many discussions about the content of any books that are shared.
