There are so many ways to remember and honour our Veterans:
- Wear a poppy.
- Attend your local Remembrance Day ceremony on November 11th.
- Thank a Veteran by sending a postcard for peace.
- Teachers – order some of our free learning materials and use our Teacher’s Guide to lead your classroom on a remembrance journey.
- Students – read one of our remembrance newspapers written just for K-2, K-Grade 6 and for Grade 7 and above.
- Talk to a friend or relative who served with the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan or in other areas of conflict.
- View our Heroes Remember videos and listen to Veterans talk about their experiences.
- Plant your own Garden of Remembrance.
- Visit the remembrance challenge page where you will find videos and images you can use to create a mashup, build a virtual scrapbook, a fan site or just decorate your own Web space. Share what you build with others and link back to our site.
Use Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and Flickr and show you remember Canada’s Veterans. Post photos, videos, and messages using the hashtags #ShowYouRemember and #ShowYourThanks.
ABCya! Animation for kids is a great tool to use in the classroom – let them try creating a bouncing ball or a growing tree or perhaps a fun way to do expanded notation. Use your imagination.
