This lesson sequence is a great way to teach students about the history of WW1 and Australia’s involvement via their battle at Gallipoli. The content is interactive and allows students to gain a real understanding as to what went on during the day of April 25, 1915. Students can be taught explicitly or allowed to run an inquiry into the events. A wonderful resource!
