Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used to spark a discussion about the impact the war had on children. Pupils could begin by using the clip to formulate a comparison chart of the life of a child in World War II and that of a child now. The teacher could provide prompts on such a chart, like 'food' and 'family'. This could build up to an empathy activity where pupils write a diary entry as if they were a child in the war.
