This resource is aimed at pupils in middle/senior classes or SEN pupils doing a unit of work on World War Two. It is based on the pupil’s knowledge of the leaders of different countries during WWII.
Cut up the sheets into seven separate cards and laminate them individually. The pupil should look at the image on the left hand side of the card and either the pupil or the teacher/SNA/supporting adult should read the names of the countries on the right hand side of the card. The pupil should decide which country the leader was in charge of during WWII. They should then place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the right of the card.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but have learned about the different leaders during WWII. It is a way for them to demonstrate this knowledge. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what SESE topic we were currently working on.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
