9LW tasks.

Posted: April 1, 2012 in Year 9

You are to study the Battle of El Alamein and this will be your next assessment. However, all students need to be aware of some of the developments in the Second World War before being taught what happened and why in the battle. The first thing to do is download the document below and complete the exercise. You can cut and paste or write them in your book.

Secondly, you need to click on the Year 9 page.  Then scroll down until you see North Africa. You need to open the powerpoint entitled, ‘North African Campaign’. It is a long presentation but you only need to use part of it. Only use slides 1 to 17. Using powerpoint, and the section on Tobruk, try to answer the following questions.

1. Why did Italy attack the British in North Africa?

2. What was the DAK?

3. Can you describe the style of fighting in North Africa?

4. When was Tobruk taken by Rommel?

5. Why was Tobruk important?

Try to answer in paragraphs where possible.

Whilst researching and analysing the above, write a list of new words you find. Find out what they mean as they may be repeated when we study the Battle of Alamein.

Any questions, see me or email over the Easter period.
