Class activity for Father’s Day – September 1st

Posted on Updated on

Teachers, here’s an idea for a Father’s Day task as Aussie Dads, Fijian Dads, NZ Dads and PNG Dads celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday September 1st!

We are sure teachers in these countries have much planned for the class. Most likely younger classes are making those memorable keepsakes for their deserving Dad!

Here’s an idea for an older class activity:

There are many famous fathers all over the world.  Below are just a few who were significant father’s in many ways.

Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Edward Jenner, George Washington, Oskar Schindler, William Shakespeare.


  1. Find out why we often refer to them as a ‘father figure’ in the eyes of the world
  2. What were their achievements?
  3. Did they have children of their own? What was their experience like as a father?
  4. Choose one of these famous fathers and write a short article of what it is like to be their son or daughter? This task alone will encourage your class to dig into the era and the lifestyle of the family, incorporating both the public and personal life. How would the public life of your ‘chosen’ father affect you and your life as a child?


Your class can meet these famous father’s and others HERE.

Meet Edward Jenner or maybe Oskar Schindler – their lives are fascinating and students world-wide can all join in this class activity that will take them into a whole new world – one our generation would not comprehend – the 4th task would be a real eye opener!
