Create a Remembrance Day or Anzac Day Display
We’ve been putting together some fantastic resources to guide your instruction surrounding Remembrance Day and Anzac Day. This Soldier writing and craft activity provides a fun, interactive way to help young students show their appreciation and gratitude towards soldiers past and present.
The open ended writing template provides students with lines to write down something special surrounding Remembrance Day and Anzac Day. Students may like to:
- write a reflection about why we commemorate Remembrance Day and Anzac Day
- write a thank you letter to a soldier
- write about why they are grateful for soldiers
- research and write about a soldier they know.
You could even display the soldier crafts in your classroom and have any local soldiers in the army come by to look at them or take them home as keepsakes.
