Product Description
This worksheet tells the story of the Christmas that stopped a war. On Christmas day 1914 the battlefields of Northern Europe became peaceful as soldiers from both the German and British front lines stepped out on to No-mans-land, shook hands, exchanged gifts, sang carols and played football.

The very next day they went back to fighting each other. I think this is a really inspirational true story showing the spirit of Christmas. It consists of a 3 page worksheet with 5 tasks at the end. You can use the clip from the film 'Oh, what a lovely war' on you tube to illustrate this. The URL is also on the worksheet.

I think this story would be relevant to several ages but you might just want to change the activities. Possibly story get the younger years to storyboard in a cartoon strip instead of answering the questions.

I hope your class find this as interesting as my classes have.
Thanks for looking!
