How to Teach Children to Celebrate Remembrance Day

Today we’re going to talk about how to teach children to celebrate Remembrance Day.

Remembrance Day is on November 11th and it occurred at the 11th hour of this month. It marks the end of World War 1.

It’s important to take some time to teach your children to pay their respects to the people who fought in the war so that they remember the purpose of this war was for us to have peace and be free to make own choices.

The following three activities will not only help your children have a better understanding of this day but will also impact the lives of your local veterans.

All of these activities can be done in class or at home.

Actionable Steps:

#1. Poppy Pause

Have your students wear a poppy on their clothes to show their support. If you have the funds, donate to your legion and get a new poppy to wear.

After they put their poppy on, take a moment to pause and to think about all of the people who fought in the war for freedom.

This is an important lesson to teach your children. You can do it together as a class or at home as a family.

#2. Creative Donations

Create cards as a class, school or family and give them to your local legion, thanking them for their service. These cards will warm the hearts of those who visit on Remembrance Day and let them know that they aren’t alone in this world. It will help them feel appreciated.

#3. Inviting Events

Every year our local veterans put on a variety of events where they hold parades or lay down wreaths. Take your children or attend them as a class and pay your respects.

Attending these events will make it more real to your children instead of it being an abstract concept that has nothing to do with them.

After you attend an event, discuss what occurred and relevance of attending it.


Let’s recap really quickly. Today, we looked at the following:

  1. The relevance of teaching students about Remembrance Day.
