AQA GCSE history lesson on the Hundred Days Offensive and the ending battles of WWI.
We start with a simple ‘if this is the answer, what is the question?’ retrieval practice quiz. We then have a brief recap of the events of the failed Ludendorff Offensive and Germany’s precarious position. We then look at Foch’s plan for the offensive in a video clip and the pupils think about Germany’s preparedness for the offensive. We then follow events in a series of event slides. The pupils read the information on the board and record the German army’s level of control at that point on the Western Front. This could be done as a round the room or carousel activity. The pupils reflect on what the critical events were. We then use a source comparison question as consolidation and finish with the pupils writing a bio-poem to General Ludendorff.
