On Remembrance Day, Canadians honor fallen heroes and heroines. Create a 3-panel display to show why and how this event is observed.
On November 11, 1918, at 11 o’clock a.m., World War I came to an end. A peace document was drawn up, called an armistice, which comes from Latin words meaning "arms (or weapons) stand still." November 11 was known as Armistice Day until 1931 when the Canadian Parliament changed the name to Remembrance Day.
Every November 11 (the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month) Canadians remember those who died during the First and Second World Wars, in Korea and Afghanistan, and in numerous peacekeeping operations. Find out what Canadians do on this special patriotic day. If possible, talk with veterans. How do other countries observe similar holidays, such as Veterans Day and Memorial Day?
