Youth Remember D-Day and the Battle of Normandy

D-Day and the Battle of Normandy was a pivotal campaign in the Second World War. The Canadians who came ashore at Juno Beach on June 6, 1944 and fought in France through that long hot summer played an important role in the Allied efforts to liberate Western Europe. Using the lesson plans below, we encourage educators to help young people become involved in understanding this proud chapter in our history and the role Canada has played in defending peace and freedom around the world over the years.

Schools and community groups can arrange to have a Veteran guest speaker visit to talk with you about D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. We also encourage you to send an e-card to a Veteran any day of the year.

For additional information visit the D-Day and Battle of Normandy section.
