The second lesson in a Key stage 3 unit of work on the Welfare State. The lesson covers the reasons why the decade was known as ‘The Hungry Thirties’, then we seek to assess whether the decade deserves this name or not. We start with a simple multiple choice retrieval practice starter. We then move onto the start of the thirties and briefly introduce the Labour Party. We then look at a series of photographs from the 1930’s and the pupils try to work out what is happening and what this tells us about life in Britain in that decade. We then watch a video clip on the decade and the pupils write down examples of hardship and examples of prosperity. We then look at the situation from the point of view of various types of people. Using the emoji pictures the pupils annotate the emojis based on what reaction these various people would have to their situation in the decade with an explanation. We then answer the question whether the decade deserves the nickname. This is done with the pupils responding to a ‘To what extent do you agree with the statement’ type question. A countdown plenary finishes the lesson.
I hope that this proves useful and saves you some time.
