ANZAC biscuits

Today some children made ANZAC biscuits because tomorrow is ANZAC day.

We learnt about the history of ANZAC biscuits and this is what we learnt...

Katie "I learnt that ANZAC biscuits ingredients didn't go off becasue there are no eggs or milk in them and they were good for the soldiers Mums and wives to make because they didn't go off"

Dakota "ANZAC biscuits used to be called soldiers biscuits"

Megan "ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps"

Toby "ANZAC biscuits used to be made out of different ingredients than the biscuits we buy today"

Loren " ANZAC biscuits were first made nearly 100 years ago"

Courtney " ANZAC biscuits were good to make for soldiers because they were really easyto make" 

Here are some photos of the children making ANZAC biscuits.

Thank you to Miss Rogers who helped us make them! They were yum!
