In order to help my students understand more about Remembrance Day, I created a presentation last year that included some videos and information. I showed them to my students today and the responses were very respectful and serious. They were very engaged in the messages that were given and they spent the day humming some of the tunes. This presentation is available for free in my TpT store. It is in 2 versions: a Smartboard version, and a pdf version.
I would love to hear about what you do with your students to show respect and teach them about the contributions our veterans made for us.
