Make your own French bleuet

Make your own French bleuet

An idea I had on how to create the French version of the Poppy - le bleuet - for Remembrance Day! I've tried to include step by step instructions - you will need: blue tissue paper, straws (or something similar), scissors and sellotape. I did adapt use and adapt another presentation on WW1 that I found on here showing key words but I can't remember the author! Hope you enjoy the activity and can make a field of bleuets with your class.
