Inspire students to think and write about veterans with a printable set of Remembrance Day Worksheets.
Why Do We Celebrate Remembrance Day?
Originally known as Armistice Day, Remembrance Day was established after World War I ended. It was first marked on November 11, 1918, to celebrate the soldiers who fought and sacrificed their lives during the war. In 1954, the holiday was renamed Remembrance Day, and it was extended to honour all Remembrance, not just those who served in World War I, and to express appreciation for protecting our freedom and peace. Every year on November 11th, we commemorate the brave men and women who served in the armed forces.
This year, inspire your students to learn more about the servicemen and women they know and love around the community. This printable set of worksheets will help your students find out the answers to their questions about the armed forces and more. With a pair of worksheets that focus on different aspects of veterans’ lives, you can inspire your students to get to know a serviceman and reflect on their sacrifices.

By conducting a one-on-one interview, kids can gain a deeper understanding of the experiences and sacrifices made by these remarkable individuals. They can ask questions about the veteran’s service, their memories, and the effect it has had on their life.
