GRADE 2

29th October Republic Day of Turkey

The 29th of October is a highly crucial day for all Turkish people. The great founder of Atatürk declared that Turkey was a republic henceforth by establishing the Grand National Assembly of Turkey on 29 October 1923. Since then, we have been celebrating the 29th of October and commemorating Atatürk proudly.

It is a certain duty as teachers and youth to convey this important date and its meaning to our younger ones.

Hence, I created these small cards for our students. They can draw the meaning of the date or they can prefer to write some words or sentences for the day on them. You can hang these cards on the walls, doors, or bulletin boards later on.

Expected outcome: The student is able to grasp the meaning of the importance of the foundation of the Turkish Republic and express his/her feelings about this important date.
