    1. ANZAC & US
    2. APresentation AboutANZAC DAY
    3. WHAT IS ANZAC ? ANZAC is a name given to members of the Australia and New Zealand army. The letters in ANZAC stand for “Australia, New Zealand Army Corp”.
    4. WHERE IS ANZAC COVE?• A small cove on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey.• Turkey is on the other side of the world from New Zealand. It is in the Middle East.
    5. WHAT HAPPENED ONAPRIL 25 TH, 1915?• The ANZACs landed at Gallipoli Peninsula.• The ANZAC’s landed at the wrong beach. The beach had steep cliffs where the Turkish soldiers were hiding. Our troops had no protection from the gunfire as they got off the boats and were drowned or shot.
    6. WHY IS ANZAC IMPORTANT TO KIWIS?• Our soldiers are so brave to fight in a war so we remember them. Most of them died to protect our country.• A lot of New Zealanders have relatives who fought in WWI and WWII. We are sad they died but we are proud that were brave enough to fight.
    7. HOW DO WE CELEBRATE ANZAC DAY TODAY? ANZAC day is a holiday in New Zealand. We have a day off school on April 25th if it is not on a weekend. We can go to a Dawn service or an ANZAC service. If our relatives were given medals for their bravery, we can wear them to the service. People place wreaths and poppies on the war memorials.
    8. WHAT DOES THE POPPY REPRESENT?• The people who died in World War I to save our country.• The fields in Anzac Cove flowered with poppies after the war. They say that the poppies are so red that it is the blood from those who died.• These days the poppies are a symbol to remember people who died in wars all over the world.
