Photographs are a rich source of evidence about life in the past.

The above photographs are held within the museum and library collections of Lincolnshire County Council. They highlight aspects of life for children during WWII. They can be used with pupils as sources of evidence encouraging visual literacy, thinking and discussion skills.

Discussion: Take each photograph and encourage the pupils to look and discuss what they can see and what is happening in each photograph. What do they imagine life was life as an evacuee or generally as a child during WWII.

Activity: Using photographs from this selection pupils can create a comic book style response using the optional template if required. It may be useful to show pupils examples of cartoons and comic styles from books, for example Ethel and Ernest by Raymond Briggs.
