'Lesson Starters' with footage of WW2 in colour.

'Lesson Starters' features footage of WW2 in colour and B&W. Sections are drawn from the home movies of British (and German) film-makers shot in WW2, and are designed to inspire students to think about the hardships children experienced during war.

The clips range from the declaration of war listened to on a Cornish beach, school life, gas masks and air raid shelters. Each section ends with a question for discussion or writing. (Contains images of war and should be watched in full for suitability prior to using as a classroom resource.) Clips are downloadable, along with a lesson plan and other documents in Word format."
