poppies


Over the past week, the students at Blair have been thinking about why we wear poppies for Remembrance Day. We read the book A Poppy Is to Remember and learned about the history of World War 1, the history of the poppy and the poem, In Flanders Fields.

Most of the students in the intermediate classes wrote Postcards for Peace to Canadian veterans that are living in care facilities here in Richmond.


 


The primary classes discussed the history of the poppy and what it represents. We looked at images of real poppies and fields of poppies and the students used the iPads to draw their own poppies.
 
 



 

 
As the students summarized:
Poppies are to remember.
Poppies say thank you.
Poppies are for peace.
