Jack thought and then smiled. “Poppy won’t grow old or tired. He won’t get sick or sad. And I will never, ever forget about him and what he did.”
Ruth smiled and ruffled Jack’s hair. “That’s right Jack. And that’s why Anzac Day is so important to me, to you and to all Australians and New Zealanders.”
Australia and New Zealand have a proud history of service and sacrifice and Anzac Day is an opportunity for both nations to recognise the brave actions of the ANZAC Troops on the shores of Gallipoli in 1915. This pack of seven activities will help your upper primary students to gain an understanding and appreciation of the origins of Anzac Day, why it is held on April 25th, where Gallipoli is and why it was so fiercely fought over, what primary sources are and why are they so valuable to historians and the traditions that are synonymous with remembering the fallen.
The seven activities included in the pack are:
♦ Comprehension text and questions activity
♦ Vocabulary Sorting Activity
♦ Traditions Research Activity
♦ Primary Source Analysis Activity
♦ Where in the world is Gallipoli Mapping Exercise
♦ Mapping the Gallipoli Peninsula Activity
An answer key is included where appropriate to make marking a breeze!
