Product Description



ANZAC day is a great opportunity to incorporate music and art into classrooms, and an excellent discussion point for a range of issues and links to other learning areas. This resource has been generated with years 3-6 in mind – so for more advanced students, you could even add a discussion on probability through playing two-up!

The backing tracks provided with this resource are MP3s (with and without vocal tracks) of a medley of popular WWI era songs – “It’s a long way to Tipperary”, “Pack up your troubles”, and “Mademoiselle from Armèntieres”

For each song there is a ‘how to best teach this’ guide with lyrics and suggested actions. Also included is an ANZAC art activity, some history of the songs, suggestions for writing your own ANZAC song, discussion points on Indigenous and Diverse troops in WWI, and a recipe for ANZAC biscuits!

As with all ACMF teaching resources, there are links throughout the document identifying which elements of the National Curriculum are being addressed.
