ANZAC Day 2015 will be acknowledged on the 25th April 2015. This will 100 years since the battle that took place in what we now refer to as Gallipoli.
It is very important that all of us remember the sacrifices the hardship and the devastation that war causes.
We need to instil in our future generations how hard war is on families, countries and our economies.
I have some books below that I recommend as well as two apps you may like to share with your grade.
I have this pack in my store for K-1 students.
It has 31 pages and gives some background notes about ANZAC Day. I have also suggested books to read – 5 books
Word Work - How many words can you make? - Venn Diagram on flags
Work on Writing - My thoughts about ANZAC Day - Recount ANZAC Day March - A wreath - Symbols
Reading - Only a Donkey – list animals
- My Grandad Marches on ANZAC DAY – character map, story board and beginning/middle/ending
- Small share book
Craft - Directions and a template to make a flag
I have started a pack for Year 3/4 which will contain some photo writing prompts, a word wall template, cooking task, making paper poppies and a look at the symbols associated with ANZAC Day
I have over the last few years gathered a few books about ANZAC Day and highly recommend you fond them in your libray - or like me check out your local book store.
This one is my latest purchase....
There are also two apps that I would highly recommend
This one is called Gallipoli and has video, old articles, tasks and medals to gather. It is also free from our ABC.
The second one is called Remembering Them.
It gives you access to real records all over Australia as shown below.
