Today, I would like to acknowledge the Yuggera people as the Traditional Owners of the beautiful land I am standing on today. From the mountains to the river, I open my heart and my eyes as I walk this land, listening, learning and caring for Country. I want to extend this respect to Elders; past, present and emerging and to all First Nations peoples reading this post today. We are all remembered here.
Just so you know, this post does contain sponsored content through the use of affiliate links, my proud partnerships and my own products and resources and I want to thank each of you for continuing to use my affiliate links to support the work I do. As you know, each blog post is based on my own experiences, opinions, and what I have been taught, and does not represent all First Nations peoples or Communities. Please remember that, connecting with your local First Nations Community is always the most respectful way for you to embed First Nations content specific to your area.
With ANZAC Day just around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to share some of my most loved ANZAC Day resources with you, so you can also use them in your classroom too.
I am going to break them up into different sections so that it's easy for you to navigate through this blog post, because there are going to be quite a few resources for you to check out.
Please remember that you can always head over to my teacher resource finder to search through and find resources for specific days of the year, subjects, First Nations countries and so many more topics. Both this post and my Teacher Resource Find are continually being updated and improved, so please remember to check back in regularly for new resources.
If you want to download or access any of these resources, just click on the image and you will be taken to where you can download them or where you can buy them. Most of the templates and printables are free to download and access, however, there are a couple that are a part of a membership.
Alright, let's go!

The Australian War Memorial - This website is truly a must have for your teacher program and lessons around ANZAC Day. The support they have for teachers and schools is truly remarkable. My personal favourite would have to be the memorial boxes, which you can book for your class. Inside they are filled with real and replica items from uniforms to equipment and so much more.
