This crafty enquiry uses a mystery start. Why was a history teacher asked to leave the Imperial War Museum? It then requires your students to use their history skills to decide whether any of the 4 famous photographs showing World War One were actually faked?
They cross-reference for a purpose, by looking at other sources about trench life, big guns and ‘going over the top’.
Can they work out whether any of the stills from the film The Battle of the Somme were faked?
They use deep thinking for a real reason. Simple and clever!
