The Imperial War Museums are a family of five museums in the United Kingdom with a focus on conflicts from World War I through current times. From the Learn portion of the site, choose Home Learning Hub which contains many resources for teaching and learning about wars through storytelling, photos, video stories, and Do It Yourself (DIY) Projects. Again from the Learn section choose Learing Resources and select from many topics; examples are British Art of the First World War, D-Day: People and Planning, Contemporary Art and War, Secret Messages and Spies, Tales From the Trenches, and many more. Many of these Learning Resources include teaching suggestions, videos, and PowerPoint downloads. The site was created in the UK, so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ from those in American English. The videos reside on YouTube and may not be viewable in your classroom.

tag(s): afghanistan (6), churchill (7), cold war (25), d day (7), europe (71), holocaust (40), middle east (41), russia (33), world war 1 (63), world war 2 (136)

In the Classroom

Discover the many ready-to-go, free resources on this site as you teach about wars and conflict. Use this information to compare and contrast British involvement in conflicts vs. those in your country. Have students create an annotated image including text boxes and related links using a tool such as Thinglink, reviewed here, to describe images taken during wartime. Create a class wiki about the conflict you are studying. Not comfortable with wikis? Check out the TeachersFirst Wiki Walk-Through.
