KS3: Joining up to fight in WW1

(0)
A perfect lesson after Franz Ferdinand! In this Year 8/9 lesson the students will be introduced to the initial stages of the First World War. They will be guided to see how Britain became involved in the war and why 1 million men volunteered to fight in the first week of war! Features: Explained exposition and Q&A in the notes section of the PowerPoint A cut and stick task to get students to consider the four reasons why one person might join the army. *This helps to break lazy thinking that there was just one motivation for wanting to join. * An optional challenge is to then analyse the reasons to identify push and pull factors. Finally a ‘fun’ propaganda poster task deconstructing how posters helped to attract so many to sign up!
