Remembrance Day Teaching Resources

Remembrance Day is a day of commemoration when we remember those who served and died in the First World War (1914-1918). It is observed in Australia and other allied nations like New Zealand, Canada, and the United States, although is called Armistice Day in some countries. Remembrance Day activities help young students to understand the solemnity of the day itself, and commend the bravery of soldiers, medics, and others who served in WW1. Symbols play a big role in Remembrance Day activities and crafts, as we help students reflect on the sacrafices made to protect our country. Red roppies feature prominently as the international emblem of remembrance. Our collection of Remembrance Day activities also contains poems, posters, wreath templates, and historical information to support your teaching leading into this important day.
