Many veterans wear medal with pride on VE Day, but not all who serve or sacrificed are awarded medals. This worksheet asks children to design a medal and think about what could it be awarded for.
Design a Medal for VE Day
This soldier template comes in 5 different sizes - from the smallest pictured below, to an XL soldier that spreads over 4 pages. We've kept the outline as simple as possible while still providing the traditional "Tommy soldier" silhouette.
This is an interesting historical worksheet. Can the kids put themselves into the shoes of someone planning that VE Day celebration in 1945? They will need to think about what food was available, who would have been invited and the sorts of activities that the party-goers would have enjoyed.
