Last year I read my class the book What Does Peace Feel Like? by Vladimir Radunsky, in honour of Remembrance Day.
After reading the book, we made these peace plates. They’re beautiful and easy to make.
I used plain white plates ~ those very flimsy ones from the dollar store. I put masking tape on them ahead of time. I was very careful to make sure that all the edges were down so that no paint would seep through.
The kids used their water colours. All I told them was to cover the entire plate and that they could use any colour except black, brown or gray.
After their paintings dried, I carefully peeled off the tape, then outlined their peace signs with a black sharpie.
Couldn’t be easier!
Another activity I do every year is a Poppy Booklet. Each pair of lines is printed on a poppy-shaped paper, with room underneath for the kids to copy the text. When their printing is finished I get them to colour and decorate the pages. After cutting out each page we then staple them together in a booklet.
You can grab the template for the booklet HERE.
And last but not least …. I have some clipart I just made for Remembrance Day. If you click on the images it will take you to Teachers Pay Teachers.
