The story of the poppy
Have you seen people wearing red poppies on special days? Who wears them and why? Hear stories of Australians who have served in the First World War, the Second World War, and Afghanistan. Find out what the poppy means to them. Encompassing both the History and Civics and Citizenship key learning areas, students will explore a significant person, site, or building, and special days within their community. Students will also investigate why and how people participate within communities, and shared values of Australian citizenship.
This live 45-minute program is suitable for lower primary students. The Memorial can connect with up to three classes or 100 students at once. Please note: virtual excursions currently run on Thursdays and Fridays during terms 3 and 4, 2021.
