Key Stage 3 lesson but could be adapted to Key Stage 4. This lesson looks at the impacts of the Second World War on health and medicine.
A simple retrieval practice multiple choice quiz starts the lesson. We then watch a Disney clip created for the US army in 1945 about the importance of taking medicines. We discuss how the clip reveals the US army’s concerns about diseases during WW2. We then look at the dangers faced by the military on the front lines and analyse the kit of a medic to see why they carried what they did and what this says about the nature of the injuries. We then look at risks to health at the ‘home front’. The pupils use an impact strip to record the impacts of the war on health and medicine, they describe the impact and explain what effect it would have had on health. We then look at a source question on penicillin. A plenary pyramid finishes the lesson.
I hope that this proves useful and saves you some time.
