Poppyscotland learning

Transforming lives by sharing our history and empowering Scotland’s learners to shape their own views around remembrance, the poppy and its legacy.


From our poppy factory tour to our travelling micro-museum, we offer educational experiences for all ages and abilities across CfE. We have a wealth of resources that challenge children to independently interpret and reflect on our history through contemporary conversations. Resources include:

  • Interactive online activities
  • Ready-to-go assemblies
  • Stimulating posters
  • Classroom activities

We aim to educate young people about what our charity does and who we help with all the money they generously raise for us during the Poppy Appeal. We believe that through storytelling, conversation and educational experiences we can better understand the past to positively impact our future.
