This resource relates to ANZAC Day celebrated on 25 April every year.
During World War One, Australia and New Zealand Army Corps were despatched to Gallipoli, Turkey to fight. This was called the Battle of Gallipoli/Dardanelles.
This day is not only celebrated in Australia and New Zealand but also in the Pitcairns Islands, the UK, Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Royal Newfoundland (Canada).
Clear and straightforward - Ideal for assemblies or as a standalone lesson.
Each slides takes you through what ANZAC day is and what it means, symbols are explained (rosemary, laurel and the poppy), why do we need ceremonies and what a typical ANZAC day ceremony involves, the dawn service and why people march.
During the presentation students are asked questions that relate to their personal experiences of celebrations and why the Anzac spirit legacy is still important today, i.e. camradeship.
