Explore Anzac Day Through Distance Learning

Explore Anzac Day though digital learning resources

You can explore Anzac Day through digital learning in a way that is engaging, fun, and extremely impactful for your students.

Introducing Anzac Day through videos

One simple way to explore Anzac Day Through Digital Learning is by sharing videos with your students. The following videos would be great to share with students via Seesaw, Google Classroom, or directly to parents via email.

The following video gives some clear background information on ANZAC Day and its importance to both Australia and New Zealand.

“What is Anzac Day?” – Video running time: 2:08

The Battle of Gallipoli has special significance for New Zealand, Australia and Turkey. The following video by BTN (Behind the News) looks at this important, and tragic event.

“Anzac Day: The Gallipoli Story” – Video running time: 4:46

BTN (Behind the News) is a great resource for videos about Anzac Day that are made specifically for children. Australian’s can view the videos via their official website, while those in other locations can view them via their Youtube channel.

“Here they come – A day to remember” – Video running time: 7:00

The Australian Department of Veteran’s Affairs has put together a fantastic video to teach students about commemoration. I love the mix of photographs and animation.
