Learning about Anzac

In Room 8 we have just started learning about ANZAC this week. This week we will be participating in the first Trans-Tasman Twitter chat for kids. Room 8 please discuss these questions at home with your family and be prepared to share your ideas on Thursday. 

Q1. How does your country/school/family celebrate ANZAC Day?
Q2. What does ANZAC day mean to you personally?
Q3. Do you have any extended family that fought in Gallipoli? What stories can you tell us?
Q4. Do you have any extended family that have fought in any other conflicts?
Q5. Do you think ANZAC day is important? Should we celebrate the day? How else could ANZAC Day be celebrated?
Q6. During Gallipoli, Australia and NZ fought side by side. Do you think the relationship between the 2 countries is important?
Q7. Why are poppies sold before and on Anzac Day? Why was the poppy chosen and what does it represent?
