WWI Battlefield Teaching Resource

Inspired by our recent Iceland series, we’ve compiled a truly insightful and heartfelt dedication of teaching resources centred on WWI battlefields in France and Belgium. Proudly in partnership with History Tour Guide, PHD candidate and First World War expert Richard Broadhead, your free educational resource aimed at KS2 & KS3 students includes a stunning classroom poster, 14 immersive battle fact files, a selection of emotive soldier’s stories and much more.

Classroom Poster

Our A3 sized poster includes the main events of the First World War. Backgrounded on a map of the Western Front, 14 pivotal battles are pinpointed to engage students with small facts alongside the context and scope of the conflicts.

Event Fact Files

Our Event Fact Files include a meticulously researched amount of detail and can be used either in unison with the Classroom Poster, where they build on the small facts in greater scope, or as a standalone resource for lessons focused on a particular battle.
