Learn about the Korean War

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world - Nelson Mandela

The Korean War was a war between North Korea and South Korea. Fighting began on the 25 June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea following a series of clashes along the border. It became a 3 year battle for territory and political power.

This series of five lesson plans will help your students better understand the brutality of this often forgotten war through the personal testimonies of surviving veterans.

"It’s a really exciting way for the students to relate to people from their area that have actually had real life experience of conflict."

Ste Howell,
Head of Humanities

To help your teaching you will find planned thinking points which stimulate classroom discussions and task pointers for the activities associated with each session. The activities themselves are located within a separate workbook, and available to you to download and use with your learners – they include individual, pair and group tasks, research and written work, homework and family involvement.

Our resources are all provided free of charge, and whilst they remain the intellectual property of Legasee Educational Trust, we would be delighted if you would download, print off, photocopy and use in the way that best suits your learning and teaching styles.

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER THIS
Legasee is one of the first consolidated attempts to document the war-time experiences of men and women who have served their country.  While remembrance ceremonies and battle anniversaries are regularly reported on TV,  this coverage rarely focuses on veterans’ personal experiences for more than a few seconds and is of limited value as an educational tool or a record of individual achievement. Legasee aims to cover military life in much more depth by focusing on personal stories and viewpoints. If you think this work is important, please consider a donation. PLEASE DONATE NOW
