Teaching Resource: Front Line


Were the trenches all 'Mud and Murder'? This teaching resource for Key Stage 3 examines what life was like for British and German soldiers serving on the front line. Using a range of primary sources from Queen Mary, St Bartholomew's Hospital and The Royal London Hospital archives this resource provides pupils with a number of different views and accounts of life on the front line enabling them to challenge the idea that the front line was all 'Mud and Murder'.

The Front Line activity sheet offers teachers suggestions of how to use the primary source material in the classroom.
