Photos are taken at Bibette Head and across the island, including the Anti Aircraft bunker known as 'The Odeon'. I made a video of the bunkers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsXKBVzIBWo), and run free virtual field trips of the bunkers for schools through Skype in the Classroom. You might also enjoy my bunker colouring pages here on the TES.

Second World War  (Photos, Worksheets, Colouring Pages)

Second World War (Photos, Worksheets, Colouring Pages)

A collection of photos and hand drawn colouring pages of the World War Two bunkers on the British Channel Island of Alderney, which was evacuated and became the base for four prisoner of war camps, and a large fortified wall. Photos are taken at Bibette Head and across the island, including the Anti Aircraft bunker known as 'The Odeon'. I made a video of the bunkers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsXKBVzIBWo), and run free virtual field trips of the bunkers for schools through Skype in the Classroom. You might also enjoy my bunker colouring pages here on the TES. The bundle would also be relevant for discussions about materials such as concrete and metal, sea water corrosion of metal, architecture and design, engineering, and the human impacts of the war. The local children were evacuated first, and Jewish labourers were brought to the camps. Today on the island you will find older generations and families where the labourers married the soldiers and the soldiers remained after the war to help clear up the 30,000 or more land mines. Why was the island part of Hitler's Atlantic Wall? Was there a strategy in place? How was the concrete brought to the island by ship? How did they use concrete to camouflage the bunkers to look like rocks? Why did the soldiers take wood from the houses to burn?
