Planning D-Day
Written for Ks3 this lesson will get students investigating the planning for and overcoming the problems associated with the opening of the Second Front in Europe.

A teacher led introduction then requires the students to open password protected documents in order to simulate the cracking of the German Enigma codes. Students will need to answer four questions regarding their knowledge of WWII and open the files. These can be amended though the questions set at the moment will require access to the internet.

With the downloaded evidence, student can plan their actions to overcome the German defenses and successfully get the Allied armies ashore.

Students then complete the beach landing sheet to explain their tactics, timings and strategies. This can be assessed using the assessment sheet included based upon the PLTs: Team Workers and Effective Participators
