Remembrance day

Thanks to Chris Saunders for this presentation that I have adapted for my LD learners. To tell them about remembrance day and the importance of the poppy. It references London but this could be changed to somewhere local to you.

3D Poppy Craftivity :: Remembrance Day :: Veteran’s Day :: Memorial Day :: Anzac Day ::

Honour the Memory. Never Forget. A wonderful Poppy Project to honor Remembrance Day, Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, and Anzac Day. An integrated curricular units that encompasses art, language and social studies. Minimal prep and easy construction…perfect for the busy classroom. 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 Remembrance Day project that will take about 90 minutes to complete. Or as long, in-depth Poppy project that will take upwards of a week to complete. I often spend a period working on the Poppy picture creating a beautiful detailed multimedia painting. These are great to work on shading details in poppies…tones and tints of red. I love adding texture to the poppies with the use of tissue paper. Then we will spend a period tracing a Poppy Poem and colouring in the boarder. With other grades, we will compose our own poems about Poppies and Remembrance Day. Then another block putting the project together. With older grade it will not take near as long…I teach Kindergarten right now.
