Every year, we participate in Remembrance Day in our classrooms and in our schools. We do art projects, we write, we attend a ceremony, we reflect, and we remember.

Does our teaching and school cover or do the same things on this topic or at this time every year? Do our classroom experiences extend beyond Remembrance Day to cover refugees and current conflicts?

This presentation examines picture books, novels, online sites, and virtual and physical learning experiences to bring to your classroom or school for both Remembrance Day and beyond. Diversity of perspectives is given special consideration.
