Market Place Activity: What part did British women play in helping to win the Second World War?

Market Place Activity: What part did British women play in helping to win the Second World War?

This outstanding resource has been designed to help students studying what impact the Second World War had on the lives of women and the different roles they played in helping to win the war. The resource can easily be adapted for display purposes but it is designed to be used as a collaborative market place activity. This beautifully illustrated resource is a must have for anyone teaching this topic. The tasks and activities have been written to appeal to the full spectrum of ability and have been set up around the market place activity where the key slides in the PP are printed off and either pinned on the classroom walls or set out on the tables so that students move around and fill in their information on the summary sheet. This is a very proactive lesson designed to get students up, moving around, sharing and working collaboratively. I have provided additional differentiation by 'ragging' or grading the difficulty of the slides so that the learners can chose their level of challenge. When you purchase this resource you will receive a 17 slide presentations which includes two starters, information slides for the market place activity and a plenary. The information slides for the market place activity looks at the roles women played as in the land army, working in factories, as secret agents or as volunteers for WAAF, ATS, WVS and the WRNS (WRENS). I have also included a table with two levels of challenge for students to complete whilst reviewing the slides during the market place activity. The aims and objectives for these resources are: Theme: The Home Front Know: Why was there a shortage of ‘manpower’? Understand: What roles did women play during the Second World War? Evaluate: How important were these roles in helping to win the war? WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: Why was there a shortage of ‘manpower’? Explain: What roles did women play during the Second World War? Analyse: How important were these roles in helping to win the war?
