20 Dec ANZAC day Activities

25 April is ANZAC day, a significant day in Australian and New Zealand history. The date marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers – the Anzacs – on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. It was the first major military action for both counties during the First World War.

In honour of this important day we have compiled a list of free resources that our Australian and New Zealand teachers can use to create engaging Activities in Verso. We’ve put some examples of how you could use these below: ANZAC Day: Sacrifice (Secondary School), ANZAC Day: Interviews (Primary School), ANZAC Day: Campaign (Secondary School) and ANZAC Day: Last Post (Primary/Secondary)

Verso Campus subscribers can head straight to the global library here to copy these Activities into their account. Not a subscriber, get in touch to learn how you can upgrade your school.
