It is multinational in approach, highlighting the fact that the war was a global one. It challenges the perception of the conflict being a white mans war, fought in Europe, from the opening slides. It uses facts such as the first shot fired by the British Empire being in Australia, and the first by the British Army itself by a Black Soldier of the Gold Coast Regiment to illustrate how the role of Black ad Asian services was interlinked with that of British, French or German ‘regular’ armies. The presentation contains 23 slides. Each includes an image and is accompanied by facts about this aspect of Black and Asian service in the war. The role of the Army and Navy are included in the presentation. It is suitable for an assembly on the topic as the information on the slides speaks for itself. A Non specialist can ask pupils to reflect on some issues, or consider the global geography involved in the examples provided. Within a history classroom the examples can be explored in more depth. Where, When and Why were men from around the world, from so many cultures, involved in a conflict such as the First World War? To help with this there is a zip file containing 52 images relating to Black and Asian service in the Great War.

For many of these volunteer and conscript soldiers the hope of a better world was a motivation. To what extent was this realised?

Greek God of Healing: Asclepius. For KS2 History

Greek God of Healing: Asclepius. For KS2 History

(0)
If you are teaching the Ancient Greeks you will probably see reference to the God Asclepius. Asclepius was one of the many Greek gods. He specialised in healing. It is likely that Asclepius was a real person who’s teaching spread throughout the City States. His followers built many temples such as the one in the cover image and supporting video. The Cult of Asclepius was active for over 700 years. Temples were built well into the Roman era. This worksheet comprises an information sheet about Asclepius and an activity sheet. It highlights some of the key points about healing done at temples dedicated to Asclepius. The activities incorporate an element of numeracy as scaling is looked at by asking pupils to comprehend how long the cult lasted for through the means of working out how long the cult lasted for. It then asks them to consider what was happening in England 700 years ago and how much has changed. This can be used alongside a timeline to show the length of time the cult lasted and to open discussion about it’s significance. A source based discussion can be undertaken based on the images used in the worksheet. Asclepius and his daughter Hygeia were shown on Roman coins in the 3rd century CE. The meaning and significance of this can be explored. Comparison with the people appearing on modern money (notes) will help to illustrate the importance. Note: There are several spellings of Asclepius in common usage.
