Soldiers and Chiefs Activity Books 1 - 12

These 12 activity books encourage students to learn through a self-directed enquiry approach and explore themes within the exhibition Soldiers and Chiefs. 

A Teachers' Guide to using the books with your class, which provides practical advice, curriculum links and follow-up activities back in school will soon be available to download from this page. 
We're currently testing the pack with teachers to ensure it's as useful and accessible as possible - contact us if you would like a pilot version of the pack.   

The 12 books are ordered by level of challenge where 1 to 4 = introductory, 5 to 8 = intermediate and 9 to 12 = advanced.  We advise you to look through a selection to determine the books best suited to your class.
