Citizenship: Campaigning for a Cause – History Activities for KS2 and KS3

Contents: 1x 4-page guidance notes for teachers 3x source sheets

Objective: Pupils choose (or are given) a topical issue to campaign on. They then consider the points they wish to argue for and against, how to promote their cause and attract supporters through various media and compare today’s advertising techniques to those of the 1950s.

The People’s History Museum’s resource packs aim to introduce schools to the resources in the museum’s Labour History Archive and Study Centre. Each pack contains facsimiles of original archival documents and some suggested class activities, which can be used to follow up a school visit or downloaded and used on their own.

Further information: Located in Manchester, the People’s History Museum is the national museum of democracy. It aims to engage, inspire and inform diverse audiences by showing that there have always been ideas worth fighting for.

You can contact the museum’s learning team on 0161 838 9190 or by emailing; for further details, see or follow @phmmcr
