Here they come: A day to remember

Tags: Primary, First World War (1914 – 1918), Education Resource

This education publication has been developed for lower primary students to assist in developing students’ understanding of commemoration. It explores a variety of characters and their perspectives on Anzac Day. Balancing fictional characters, stylised illustrations and photographs, the publication shows students that Anzac Day is significant to many Australians, is an important part of Australian community life, and is a respectful event containing commemorative traditions and symbols. The publication is supported by education materials that align to the Australian Curriculum: Humanities and Social Sciences.

These Learning Activities support the education publication, Here they come: A day to remember. The activities aim to assist you in teaching students to understand and appreciate the concept of commemoration and to broaden their knowledge of Australia’s wartime experiences. By exploring a range of possible perspectives, students will come to understand why many people choose to commemorate, why Anzac Day is a day of national significance and why it is important to remember the impact of the war on Australian communities.

Here they come: A day to remember also provides the opportunity for students to identify the common symbols of commemoration and reflect on the significance of memorials in our communities.

Key concepts in the text include: commemoration, identity and diversity, citizenship and civic participation, community values, connections to the past, symbols, service and sacrifice.

Great Debates: Conscription is designed for teachers and students of Year 9 Australian Curriculum: Humanities and Social Sciences. It enables them to investigate the variety of attitudes Australians had toward conscription a century ago.

While an event may be significant in our nation’s history, it will not always be of interest to young students. This resource is intended to engage students with, as well as educate them about, our political and wartime history.

Great Debates: Conscription is modelled on inquiry-based learning. It adopts a debate format using role-play of key characters. Students are not given the information synthesised but rather they are provided with primary and secondary sources to investigate from the perspective of an individual. Students must examine the evidence to ascertain what their character would most likely have felt about conscription.
