Design an ANZAC Commemorative Medallion

This year, Anzac Day will fall on Thursday, 25th April 2019. Anzac Day is an important occasion for all Australian and New Zealander people. As such, this simple lesson plan has been designed to pay respect to those who…

…gave their tomorrow for our today.

Using design and creative thinking skills, students create their own ANZAC Commemorative Medallion. The medallion can be of any shape or design, but should reflect the ANZAC spirit of mateship, endurance, courage and bravery. Completed medallions can be arranged in the form of a wreath and displayed in classrooms to mark ANZAC Day. 🙂

  • As an inquiry and project based learning activity, students research the medals and honours awarded to men and women who served in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations around the world, and investigate different types of military service medals and decorations.
  • Using computers and digital devices, students are encouraged to use basic design software such as, Photoshop, Tux Paint or PowerPoint to create their medallions. Alternatively, students could use arts and craft materials if those resources are unavailable.
