Remembrance Day Poem/Prayer

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


An activity for Scouts write a poem/prayer to help remember and honour those who have been involved in armed conflicts


A set of about nine remembrance day related words per group.


Split the Scouts up into Patrols or groups and each give them a set of related words (i.e brave, battle, & fought), no more than about nine each. From this get each group to write a verse with the words in (if they are having trouble fitting them all in just get them to put what they feel is the more important ones). Make sure you have leaders and /or young leaders on hand to help the groups get there ideas down on paper. You can then have the Scouts read them out at the end of the meeting or at your remembrance day event.
