Canadians have fought in wars around the world. One Canadian soldier who we pause to remember on Remembrance Day is Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. He was a doctor during World War I, and he wrote the poem, "In Flanders Fields" about his experience watching soldiers fight and die during the war. In his poem, John McCrae talks about the poppies that grew in the fields where the soldiers fought and were buried. On Remembrance Day, Canadians wear poppies to show that they are remembering the soldiers who lost their lives in war.
Division 2 has been talking about war and how it affects people. During Art class this week we created Word Clouds to show what we think about war and peace.
