Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Years: 3 - 6

Learn about life on the battlefields with this letter from the trenches worksheet.

Remembrance Day Worksheet + Anzac Day Worksheet

This worksheet is the perfect activity to have your students complete on Remembrance Day or Anzac Day. This teaching resource is the perfect way for students to learn about life on the battlefields. Spend some time researching this with your students. Then, they can pretend to be a soldier or nurse and write home to their loved ones.

For a historical twist, why not stain the letters with teabags after they’ve been written and display them in your classroom alongside your Remembrance Day vocabulary or Anzac Day Vocabulary.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

Help students struggling to generate ideas by:

  • Researching what life was like on the battlefields as a class and brainstorm things soldiers may have wanted to share with their families back home – display this brainstorm for students.
  • Having students work in small groups.
