Welsh govt unveils WWI teaching resources

03/12/2014 Joanna
Cutting edge educational resources have been unveiled by the Welsh government to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.

Developed in partnership with the National Library of Wales and Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, the resources will enable young people to understand how Wales and the world changed forever as a result of the First World War and the subsequent peace conferences.

They are bilingual, cross curricular and contain audio, video, images and texts relating to the war. Lesson plans are included, along with links for use against the Literacy and Numeracy Framework.

Secondary schools are also being given the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to £1,000 each to fund commemorative and informative projects in their area.

In addition, a 'Theatres of War' app, which forms part of the Wales @ War inclusive learning and discovery project, will use geotechnology to enable pupils to find out where members of the armed forces fought, fell and are buried, and provide details on the conditions they faced.
