Red Poppy Template

PDF | 1 page|Grades: F - 7

A template to use to make a poppy for Anzac Day and Remembrance Day.

Use this template when commemorating Anzac Day and Remembrance Day with your students.

Cut out each of the pieces of the poppy. Colour the petal section red and then use a split pin to secure the pieces together.

The red poppy is the emblem of remembrance. We wear the red poppy in memory of our soldiers who laid down their lives in Flanders’ Fields during World War I. It is also a symbol of respect and camaraderie between the soldiers of all Allied nations and for the land in Northern France, which was a common battleground.

This is great. Although, it would be nice if the kids knew the difference between Anzac day and Remembrance day.

Hi Charu,

Thank you for your comment. I agree it is very important for children to know the difference between Anzac Day and Remembrance Day. This would make a great discussion with your class or possibly on a whole school assembly.

Kind regards
