Anzac Day -'Battleshots' gameQuick View

Anzac Day -'Battleshots' game

A super-fun game that your students will love! Particularly suitable for New Zealand and Australian classrooms that are looking for learning activities based around Anzac Day. You’re in a trench above Anzac Cove. You receive a coded message from your Commander. Decipher the code and then prepare for battle against a classmate … The game is based on the popular game of ‘Battleships’ but this game has an Anzac theme. Players give co-ordinates to destroy enemy targets in the area across from ‘No Man’s Land’. Vocabulary used in this game will prompt further research to develop a deeper understanding of the time soldiers spent in Gallipoli (eg, bivvy, jam tin bomb, stores, field gun, trench, etc). This resource contains 3 different levels of the code breaking task and the game templates. It will suit a range of abilities, allowing you to differentiate your student’s learning. I believe it suits students from approximately Year 4 upwards (age 8/9 yrs+). Included: ♦ Pre-game codebreaking task – decipher the message that is written in Morse Code (3 different levels). Optional task (it doesn't affect the game). ♦ Game instructions ♦ Game templates (3 different levels) ♦ Post-game activity – write a Morse code message back to your Commander informing him of the outcome of the battle. Math Learning Objective: Geometry (position and orientation): Communicate and interpret location using grid references. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

A ‘Fun with a Ruler’ art project for your students to complete leading up to Remembrance Day / Memorial Day / Armistice Day / Anzac Day. This project involves your students ruling straight lines between 2 dots on a template, to create a poppy.

Included: ♦ Template – black dots ♦ Template – light grey dots ♦ Example – black/white ♦ Instructions ♦ Teacher notes Level of Difficulty: Your students need to be able to use a ruler to draw straight lines between 2 points (the curves are made with straight lines … it’s like magic!).

Instructions: Simple, clear, easy-to-follow instructions are provided. One instruction per page (image and a sentence). Display the instructions via a data projector if you have access to one. Otherwise print and enlarge them and/or demonstrate on an enlarged template. Equipment: You need a ruler and a pen (black works best).

Keywords: string art, parabolic curves, math, geometry, patterns, war, symbolism, veteran, © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
ANZAC Day Jeopardy Quiz GameQuick View

ANZAC Day Jeopardy Quiz Game

This fun and engaging game is the perfect way to review, study or reflect with your class on ANZAC day I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. Once you have unzipped the file you will find a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say “yes” to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions.
