Week of Remembrance - Word Search Vimy Ridge
Posted on November 8th, 2017
Continuing with our Week of Remembrance, students learned about Canadian soldiers who sacrificed their lives at Vimy Ridge with a word search presented by Laura.
The Canadian Corps was ordered to seize Vimy Ridge in April 1917. Situated in northern France, the heavily-fortified seven-kilometre ridge held a commanding view over the Allied lines. The Canadians would be assaulting over an open graveyard since previous French attacks had failed with over 100,000 casualties.
