Teaching Resource: Home Front


'Just how terrifying were air raids in London during World War One?' This teaching resource for Key Stage 3 examines how zeppelin raids impacted the lives of those living in London. It uses a range of primary sources from Queen Mary, St Bartholomew's Hospital and The Royal London Hospital archives. These resources offer the opportunity for pupils to explore how the zeppelin raids were experienced by those in East London, how the raids were depicted by the media and what different accounts can tell us about the home front during the war.

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