Amy, Ella, Jai, Monique, Shoma and Tara have made a movie to explain what Anzac Day means to them. The movie was made using the SonicPics app on the iPad. The movie was made to tell the students of Forth Worth in Texas about an important national day in Australia.
As you will find out from the movie, the word Anzac came from the involvement of Australian and New Zealand soldiers in World War One. Today we commemorate all Australians involved in war by getting involved in the Dawn Service, eating Anzac biscuits, going to special footy matches, and attending school ceremonies.
Have these moviemakers left anything out? Do you think we should be commemorating Anzac Day doing these activities? Can you think of other ways in which to commemorate?
