Commemorate the end of World War I on Remembrance Day

By Ingrid Candido

Remembrance Day is the commemoration of the end of World War I in 1918. This Miniclip is a powerful teaching resource to help identify and discuss the origins of an important day in Australia's history.

Australian Celebrations and Commemorations: Remembrance Day

Each year at 11am on November 11 we remember those who died in World War I, and commemorate those who represent Australia in conflicts past and present. This Miniclip provides a simplified context for the beginning of the Great War, the signing of the Armistice, the effect of the war on people, and the importance of commemorating it each year. Students will also discover the significance of the red poppy, who the ANZACs were, and the role of cenotaphs in local communities.
