Description of the KS3 activities
KS3 activity on shelters
This activity examines the relative usefulness of Bill Brandt's photographs and the Rev Mackay's parich newsletters to the historian in helping us understand how Londoners coped with life in the shelters.
The activity poses the following question:
"Bill's photos give us more insight into how Londoners coped with life in the air raid shelters during the blitz than James's newsletter". Do you agree?
Pupils have to collect and assess evidence for and against this statement and present their conclusions within a writing frame.
