making white poppies, have the kids draw scenes of war, or anything that remembrance day means to them... of course no blood guts and gore =o)

you could do the same on crosses... or use black construction paper and do the drawings in white. it looks great!

We did thumbpring poppies on small white squares and wore them around the school for the day. Of course, I had to explain the significance of the poppies. The kids made one for all the adults in the building too. It turned out cute.

Here is a link to a list of Remembrance Day sites.

http://www.fvsd.ab.ca/stm/remembrance_day_sites.htm

There are poems etc. as well as a couple art type activities. Over the years I have done various things such as a paint wash on the paper eg. orangey red --- dark, medium light so this sort of gives an horizon line. Then tear and glue or cut and glue crosses, poppies etc and do a perspective lesson. Big ones down low, small up high. I have also washed the paper with green paint in bottom 1 / 3 and blue paint other 2/3---- again gives a horizon line and done the cross outlines.
Another favourite is the 4 heart shapes to make a poppy.
We have also taken a simple poppy shape, photocopied onto white paper. Drawn grid lines ---- big squares (about 3 squares by 4 squares) and then the kids take 3 colours (eg. red, purple, orange) and colour the grid --- no two touching squares can be the same colour.
(This is really quite effective and I have done a terrible job of describing it. I need to start taking pictures of our bulletin boards)

Another favourite is the wreath of hand prints. Trace and cut hand prints out of red construction paper, curl fingers, glue onto big wreath shaped cardboard ring.
I have also handpainted the kids hands and made a circle of peace. So the hands are stamped down in a circle. Then I have drawn and painted an outline of the globe in the centre. I have done this a couple of times on fabric as well so we have a flag or banner.

You could also make a Rainbow of Peace using the kids handprints.
