Poppy Art – Remembrance Day, Memorial Day, Armistice Day, Anzac Day.

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. Your students could write something in the petals before colouring (eg facts, opinons, a 4 line poem, etc). Display them together to make a 'poppy patchwork quilt'. 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!). The design looks more complicated than it actually is. Concentration is required, but the actual process is not difficult. A pattern is repeated 8 times. 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). Something to colour with (eg coloured pencils, watercolours, felt tip markers, chalk pastels, dye, etc) Size: The artwork measures approximately 17cm x 17cm. Designed on A4 size paper. Keywords: string art, parabolic curves, math, geometry, patterns, war, symbolism, veteran, © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Honour the Memory. Never Forget. A wonderful Poppy Project to honor Remembrance Day, Veteran's Day, Memorial Day and Anzac Day. There are 12 lantern designs and 14 trim sets with various messages of Remembrance. These units are created in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want depending on the needs and the abilities of your students. There are so many different possibilities. This unit can be approached in several ways. Either as a quick Poppy project that will take about 90 minutes to complete. Or as long, in-depth project that will take upwards of a week to complete. In my classroom, creating the basic lantern will take my kiddos about 90 minutes (coloring and assembly). Adding on large Poppies or Message Ribbons will take an additional 45 to 60 minute blocks of time. I normally read a Peace storybook for my Kiddos. Then we create one large Poppy circle for each Peace related book, writing and drawing one element from the story that is important. Use this Peace project as the center piece for your Remembrance, Veterans, Anzac or Memorial Day units. In Elementary grades, keep this project simple. Colour or paint the lanterns. On the back of the flower embellishments have the kids write a sentence about what Peace Is. I love reading Todd Parr's book...Peace Is. In Intermediate Grades, on the back of the Poppies, have your kiddos research the different wars...record the name of the war and the death toll. I always find it shocking the number of people who have died to keep us safe. We shall never forget... In High School, especially in Grade 11 Socials, get the kids to research one of the wars or peace keeping missions. Either have them draw on or behind the words images of peace/war. Use the flowers or their own symbols of peace to add notes about their research. :: Poppy Craft :: Peace Poppies :: Fine Motor Crafts :: Poppy Crafts for Kids :: Poppy Activities :: Paper Lantern :: Ms Lil :: Remembrance Day Craft :: Veteran's Day Craft :: Memorial Day Craft :: Anzac Day Craft :: Remembrance Day Activity :: Veteran's Day Activity :: Memorial Day Activity :: Anzac Day Activity ::
