Book Now for Documentary Challenge!
Give your pupils the opportunity to put their source analysis and evaluation skills into action whilst working as a team to produce mini documentaries about the personal stories and histories behind the objects in IWM’s collections. Documentary Challenge can be booked for upper Key Stage 2 - Key Stage 3 and is available at IWM North, IWM Duxford and IWM London and can be used to complement studies of conflict from the First World War to the present day.
Hi, it's Reena. All around you, you've got objects, texts, videos, loads of sources. Everything around you has something to say about a conflict. All this is from the past, so you're gonna have to work extra hard to tell us why we should care about it today. Now it's time to find your story.
You're gonna have to choose one thing in the gallery to start with that you think you can say something interesting about. Why does the story that you want to tell matter. What can you tell your viewers about life back then. Try to find something from another perspective. Think about whether there are any similar things happening in the world today. Tell us why you care and why you think our viewers should care.
