Holiday Reading Challenge Day 4 Activity 1

Today I did the first activity of day four for the school holiday reading challenge, for it I had to find out about what life was like as an ANZAC soldier. I also had to find three facts and explain why I found them interesting.
1. The whole reason as to why the war happened is because Franz Ferdinand and his wife were assassinated in Serbia. I found this interesting because it shows that one death can mean many.
2. Over 44,00 ANZAC troops died because they missed the intended landing spot, they landed in a cliff where huge guns decimated their lines. I found this interesting because it shows that one mistake could cost thousands of lives during the war.
3. The ANZAC troops trained in Egypt. I found this interesting because it's so far away from New Zealand and Australia, therefore they must've been homesick.

  1. Hello Alex
    Great job on finding those three facts. If Franz Ferdinand hadn't have been assassinated, the war would never have started. Keep up the great work.
