Lesson 5 from the acclaimed teaching pack 'Dial M For Missile: Exploring Themes Around the Cuban Missile Crisis'.
Following on from the lesson on Civil Defence, this lesson gives students an insight into the history of nuclear bunkers, and gets them to decide in small groups what items they would prioritise in a nuclear bunker to help them survive a nuclear attack. They can then create some of these items, and/or role-play being in the bunker.
The lesson plan includes differentiation, extension and enrichment suggestions. The lesson is highly relevant to Citizenship, History, Art & Design, and Drama, as well as helping to meet SMSC, Prevent and British Values requirements.
