Peace Activities for Remembrance Day (Canada) or even Veteran’s Day (U.S), includes a writing lesson and FREE peace writing template and poppy art.
November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada. It is a day to remember those who have fought and died for our country. We pay our respects each year with a minute of silence at 11 a.m. and we each wear a poppy over our hearts.
My school has a special assembly the day before Remembrance Day to illustrate to children the importance of this day and so that they may learn about our history. We share writing and poetry. Also, we read ‘In Flanders Fields’ by Sir John McCrae. Then, we make wreaths with poppies in our classrooms to share during the assembly and line our hallways with the artwork.
