Dunkirk Movie Wordsearch History World War 2 Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Dunkirk Movie Wordsearch History World War 2 Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Dunkirk Movie'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Conflict and Tension (or Cooperation) 1918-1939 Timeline

Conflict and Tension (or Cooperation) 1918-1939 Timeline

This is a great timeline to use in the classroom or for display in the department. I have mine now displayed in the classroom so I can refer to it as I am teaching the GCSE 1-9 course. The students have a visible chronology of the peoples and events that influenced and shaped Europe before 1939 with the successes and failures of the League of Nations. It really clarifies the subject content for them and each of the 41 slides has an accompanying picture and commentary on the side. Many of my students have already downloaded and downsized the slides to aid them in their revision at home.
