Gradual Change in Nazi Germany

Gradual Change in Nazi Germany

A powerpoint, worsearch, timeline, video and youtube video about how Nazi Germany gradually slid into more and more extreme versions of anti-semitism. It chronicles the dates of some of the 2000 laws passed against Jews in the years following Hitler's election in 1933, and attempts to answer the question HOW did normal people allow, and participate, in the Holocaust. It attempts to answer this to help students understand how vigilance in any society, and the trends within it, are something any healthy citizen should take part in. The Key Learning Question is: How did the Holocaust happen? Activities are differentiated, and extension activities are included. Resources suited for yr.6 (10yo) and up.

An Introduction to the Holocaust: A Hill of Shoes

An Introduction to the Holocaust: A Hill of Shoes

This lesson is a Philosophy for Children lesson, supported by activities and pictures to try and get young people to engage with the huge injustice and personal loss of the Holocaust. It involves getting students to enquire into each others lives using the medium of their shoes: trying to be detectives (in a Sherlock deduction method sort of way). What can we tell about a person from a shoe? Very little. Yet this is all we have left of many human stories from the Holocaust, all 6, 258, 673 Jews and 3 million others. Its an attempt to get students to emote and empathise with the fact that each of those numbers is a person with a full story. Learning Questions include: The Holocaust- What was it? How many people died? Why are we learning about it? More detailed instructions on the P4C exercise included.

Just War Theory

Just War Theory

This lesson explores the Just War theory and looks at several case studies to consider whether or not the War was justified (e.g. WW2, Vietnam, Gulf War etc.) It challenges pupils to apply the criteria set out to determin whether or not these wars (or any war) is justified. It also asks questions about the greater good, human rights and the value of life. A really interesting lesson.
