Remembering a World War One Soldier

This site assists History students to actively commemorate an Australian who served in the Great War (World War One). Students put together events in the individual Australian's service to build and tell their story. This involves research using online primary and secondary sources. Reconstructing the life of an individual enables the soldier to briefly ‘live again’, be remembered and not be just an anonymous name on the wall of a memorial.

The website contains resources and links to assist teachers and Stage 5 History students in their study of World War One. To use the site:

Teachers start at the Teacher Info page and choose the task and resources suitable for your class and activity. This page has links to downloadable resources to help both teachers and students.

Students read through the Task page then start with the Research page.
