Trench conditions - 14 page lesson pack

Trench conditions - 14 page lesson pack

In this lesson students read through detailed background knowledge before completing a card sort activity to explain both the terrible aspects of the conflict as well as some of the more positive elements. This is a great lesson because the level of depth and detail acquired is top notch and because it offers students the opportunity to review two sides of an argument. It leads in really nicely to a piece of written or assessed work and I hope your students get as much from it as mine always do. The lesson includes two copies of a 25-piece evidence sort, one of which is colour-coded for students who require additional support.

How far was Haig responsible for slaughter on the Somme 1916

How far was Haig responsible for slaughter on the Somme 1916

Great resource and lesson that has been used as a project over a few lessons. Great for investigation work in KS3. Break it down to look firstly at why the Somme was chosen for the 1916 attack. Then shift attention to why there were so many casualties on the first day, sources can be used to look at cause and consequence, or focus on source interpretation or both! students have opportunity to investigate as teams and pass knowledge on. Then focus on how far Haig was to blame for casualties and the pyramid task enables students to build up the concept of how to prioritise information. Video of Blackadder helps look at traditional view of Haig and ‘The Line of Fire’ can be used to build up a list of problems before the battle. This can also be used to develop essay writing and used as an assessment which has been really successful.
