A Beautiful ANZAC Day Display for your Classroom or School

Over the years, we have taught many different ANZAC Day lessons to commemorate this important event on the Australian calendar. Still, this activity (that doubles as a class display) is one of our faves.

This resource aims for students to reflect upon ANZAC Day and what this important commemoration means in our country.

3D Poppy Activity


Begin by sharing a book with your students or having a class discussion about ANZAC Day. Then use this activity as an ideal follow-up for your students to reflect and show what they have learned.

This 3D Display includes a variety of pages to pick and choose from depending on your class, their age and abilities. Some pages require students to consider and reflect, while others will teach them about things we see and hear on the day.

Why we love this ANZAC Day resource:

It teaches students about the meaning of this important day.

It can be completed as a series of short lessons supported by literature.

It is suitable for a range of age groups.

It asks students to reflect on their role as a citizen on ANZAC Day.

They are the perfect way to invite conversation about veterans, Australian history and war.

It requires the higher-order thinking skill of reflection.

It is simple to prepare but very effective when displayed.

It could double as an assembly item or display in a school common area.



At the end of the day, we as teachers, have an obligation to encourage students to think about ANZAC Day and why it is a time that Australians stop and reflect on the past.

Although it is a public holiday nationwide, it is important that the teaching and learning opportunity about ANZAC Day isn’t missed in our classrooms.
