Write to the Troops
In this activity students will write a letter or short message and send it to a currently serving Canadian soldier. Students will practice and further develop their writing skills while boosting the morale of a soldier who is currently away from their family and loved ones. (This activity can take as little as 10 minutes, the length being dependent upon the writing ability of the writer).
Click to visit the Government of Canada’s (GoC) “Write to the Troops” page and follow the directions.

Note that there are two writing options to choose from:
(1) a short message (1,500 character max.) posted onto the GoC webpage, or
(2) a longer letter using the postal system (see GoC’s directions).
