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?

The Victorians Wordsearch Victorian Era Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

The Victorians Wordsearch Victorian Era Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'The Victorian Era'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Black History Month: The American West

Black History Month: The American West

This outstanding resource has been designed for Black History Month and focuses on the achievements of Black People in the American West. 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 two different summary sheets to help provide weaker students with more structure when recording their research. The information in the market place activity looks at nine individuals from a cross section of society and the roles they played in the American West. These include mountain men, pioneers, businessmen, Native American Chiefs, lawmen, law makers, soldiers, preachers and cowboys. The aim is to provide students with an alternative positive perspective of the achievements of black people, which is often overlooked in traditional text books. The starters and plenaries are designed to help students to draw upon their prior knowledge and question whose story is being told. I have deliberately focused on the achievements of black men to help set up the plenary so that students can think about 'Herstory' and other perspectives and the purpose of history. The aims and objectives for these resources are: Theme: The American West Know: What is Black History month? Understand: Why is it important to highlight black history? Evaluate: What roles did Black people play in the settlement of the West? WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: Black History Month Explain: Why is it important to highlight black history in the curriculum? Analyse: What roles did Black people play in the settlement of the West?
