Canadians recognize Remembrance Day, originally called Armistice Day, every 11 November at 11 a.m. It marks the end of hostilities during the First World War and an opportunity to recall all those who have served in the nation’s defence.
This resource examines the importance of remembrance; and the service and sacrifice of Canada's veterans and peacekeepers. Knowing our past influences the present – our action, beliefs, and understandings.
This resource introduces students to the importance of Remembrance Day through:
- Reading about Canada’s national monuments and heroes.
- Identifying words related to Remembrance Day and classifying the words by parts of speech
- Creating a parts of speech Remembrance Day poem
The resource contains three DETAILED LESSON PLANS!
Each lesson plan contains a mini lesson, activities, and printables.
- Poppies Are to Remember
- Stories of Remembrance
- Parts of Speech Poetry
Includes ANCHOR CHARTS!
The anchor charts can be displayed as posters or printed for student reference.
