This is a Scottish National 4/5 History lesson on Scottish casualties and death on the Western Front in WWI. While the content is appropriate for experiences of soldiers from across Britain, some activities are tailored towards the Scottish examination system. As I operate a mixed class, there are activities designed for both National 4 and National 5 included within the lesson.
This lesson examines four key battles of WWI involving Scottish soldiers. Two have a specific Scottish focus - Loos and Arras. Each battle is examined in terms of the purpose of the battle, the casualty statistics of the battle, the main weapons used in the battle and their impact, and the main tactics used in the battle and their impact. There are accompanying images of the battle/those involved, as well as of the memorials that now stand at these sites.
National 4 students are to then use their notes to write a newspaper article, while National 5 students will attempt a To What Extent 9 mark exam question.
