What Happened?

Many soldiers returned from their rest on Lemos Island to find Gallipoli looking very different.
• How was the Gallipoli Peninsula different?
• How did the soldiers cope with these changes?
• What were some of the new hardships and problems?
• What was a good thing about the change in conditions?

 

Use what you have learnt to:

Create your own version of snakes and ladders. Change the snakes and ladders for Gallipoli related objects. At the top of each snake or the bottom of each ladder write a reason for having to go up or down. For example: By the head of a snake (or what you replace the snake with) you could write, 'Frostbite gets your toes and makes it hard to walk ... down you go!' By the bottom of a ladder (or what you replace the ladder with) you could write, ' Great coats arrive, protection from the cold ... up you go!' Make your board large enough so that you can easily write in each square.

Break down the big picture into parts:

To learn list of facts it can help to match each fact with a body position or mini mime. Make a list of 8 -10 facts about Gallipoli in November 1915. For each fact come up with a different body position (frozen mime) or mini mime. Perform your different body positions / mini mimes. People could guess what each one stands for.

Create something new:

Create a machine or object that would have been very useful in Gallipoli in 1915. Present your machine or object as a labelled diagram, explaining all of its special features.

Use your knowledge and own ideas to form a point of view:

List 5 - 10 different ways the soldiers kept warm (some of these you would have read about, some you will need to come up with yourself). Rank these with number one being the most effective way.
