ANZAC Day Jeopardy Quiz Game

ANZAC Day Jeopardy Quiz Game

This fun and engaging game is the perfect way to review, study or reflect with your class on ANZAC day I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. Once you have unzipped the file you will find a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say “yes” to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions.

Persuasive writing - purposeful letters about Walter Tull and Phoebe Chapple

Persuasive writing - purposeful letters about Walter Tull and Phoebe Chapple

These resources support a set of lessons on purposeful persuasive letter writing (KS2). Based on research I did to write Vlad and the First World War, they focus on Walter Tull and Phoebe Chapple. Both could have been awarded the Military Cross, but prevailing attitudes discriminated against them. The lessons support writing a letter to persuade the Ministry of Defence to award them posthumously. It includes a set of lesson plans linked to the literacy curriculum, templates for making notes and crib sheets if you want to focus on the letter writing rather than note taking. There are website links for research and 2 videos summarising their lives. Government offices respond to letters so if sent will receive a letter back. Further resources are available on my website www.readingriddle.co.uk along with information on my books and school visits.

Evaluating historical sources from the First World War

Evaluating historical sources from the First World War

This beautifully illustrated resource has been designed to help KS3 students understand the problems historians face when using photographs and letters from the First World War. It looks at the issues surrounding recruitment, morale, the Christmas Truce and the introduction of press censorship and of soldiers personal letters. When you purchase this lesson you will be able to download a PowerPoint and an accompanying lesson plan. The PowerPoint includes the aims, objectives, information slides, photocopy sheets, video clip links, starters, plenaries and activities that drive the lesson. The lesson begins with a snowballing starter of the key words. This is followed up by a ‘buzz and go’ peer review sheet where students spend two minutes writing down what they already know about how to use a historical source, this is then passed onto the next person to peer review and add an extra point and so forth until all four squares are complete. At this stage, I get my students to nominate someone to feedback for their table before moving onto the next three information slides on how to use a source successfully, followed by the problems the army faced in recruiting people from September to December 1914 and then the Christmas Truce. At the relevant points, I ask my students why they think the number of people volunteering dropped off and how the British public would react to the photographs of British and German soldiers during the Christmas Truce. We then discuss the steps taken by the British Army to ban cameras, censor letters and newspapers after the Christmas Truce to protect morale. Depending upon how much time you have, I then set my students one of two tasks. The first task involves censoring a soldier’s letter from the trenches to make sure it does not damage morale back home or give away military secrets, meanwhile the second task involves imagining that they are a newspaper editor in 1914 who has to sort through a series of photographs from the trenches and decide which ones could be printed. Both these activities are followed up by questions which get students to justify and explain their selection of which information to censor. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Know: How to use historical sources for an enquiry on the First World War? Understand: What problems face historians using sources from the First World War? Evaluate: What information would have been published or written about the war? Skills: Source Analysis, Cause, Consequence & Collaboration WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: How to use a historical sources during an historical enquiry?
