War Memorials Trust aims to educate young people about the importance of war memorials, both in the past and in the present day. With this knowledge young people, the future custodians of the UK’s war memorials, will be able to continue our work to protect and conserve war memorials and ensure they remain in our communities forever.
The lesson plans in this section cover general war memorial issues, including:
- the history of the UK's war memorials and Remembrance
- researching the names on war memorials and using them to learn about local history
- the varying designs of the UK's memorials
The Trust's lesson plans have been written by our Learning Officer and tested in schools. They are fully linked to the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum.
