ANZAC Day – 25 April

ANZAC is the abbreviated term for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Soldiers from both nations soon became known as ANZACs. ANZAC Day is a very important occasion for our nation. It’s the anniversary of the first military campaign that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during World War One. On ANZAC Day we commemorate all the military conflicts that followed this first campaign and we remember the sacrifice of our service personnel and honour the fallen.  Lest We Forget.  

Below are some fun ANZAC coloring-in and activity sheets that are completely FREE to download and print.  We hope they aid you in spreading the ANZAC commission of “not forgetting”.

NOTE: The following TWO activity sheets are for the older kids. 

War has many sad stories that don’t have happy endings.  But these stories should be remembered (for when we forget, the past repeats itself).  So, here’s an exercise for the older kids to write a story based on the three silhouettes.  Don’t prompt them; just let the images speak to them personally and then let them write.  And remember: it’s not about the story they come up with, it’s that they have spent time walking in the shoes of those who have sacrificed on behalf of others.
