An Anzac Study

After pulling all the books off our shelf for Anzac day I opted to whip up a few plans for our family. Nothing super fancy, after all we tend to keep things relatively simple around here.

I thought I'd share them here because I know I'm always on the lookout for things to use with our Australian studies, & I'm sure others are as well.

Inside is a preplanned schedule that we'll be using, but also a blank schedule page to come up with your own plans if you'd prefer. I've scheduled research questions, geographical locations to be found around Gallipoli, vocabulary words to define, a couple of simple science projects {our garden needs sprucing up after all}, & of course the making of Anzac Biscuits.

I've also included links to art projects, a few simple videos, & our Anzac Pintrest boards, just incase the imbedded links don't work. I've also tucked in a few notebooking pages based on the activities inside that I've scheduled.

I've included a couple of vocabulary papers, one with HWOT lines & one without. 2 Nature Journaling pages if you choose to plant some poppies &/or sprout some Rosemary. There's also a comic book style timeline starting with the announcement of WWI & ending with the 100th Anniversary of the landing at Anzac Cove. It's nothing fancy, but it goes along with the activity of making an illustrated timeline. My boys are very into writing & drawing their own comic books so I knew they'd love this project.

In the very back of the little study are some extra resource links if you're interested. Someone has put together a lovely little pack on Teacher's pay Teachers for the younger crowd as well as some of the middle students too. Links to the books we'll be using & so on.

If you're interested in downloading it feel free to snag it here. I'll be sharing goodies on & off throughout the week ahead on Facebook & will post a few of the lovelier ones here as well.

One of the things I love about homeschooling is the education I receive. Thanks for my lesson in Australian history today, as I had to look up ANZAC!
